Negro League MLEs by Eric Chalek

Due to the different opportunities presented to Black and Latino players before integration, the Hall Rating of these players does not accurately reflect their Hall of Fame cases. When possible, the Hall of Stats uses Eric Chalek’s Negro League MLEs to present an alternate Hall Rating for prominent early Black and Latino stars. Jim Gilliam has a 81 Hall Rating using these MLEs. The rest of the stats on this page come from real game data, not MLEs.
