Baseball Birthplaces and the Retro World Baseball Classic

July 23, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

Upon the conclusion of the 2017 World Baseball Classic (the fourth iteration of the tournament which began in 2006), I started to wonder how the rosters would have looked in previous years. Using stricter rules for roster construction (basing all rosters on birthplace alone, 20-year periods between tournaments and additional stipulations outlined in the Methodology section below), I assembled regional teams and organized the players and lineups.

The complete set of Retro WBC rosters along with every ballplayer listed by birthplace (grouped by cities and states/countries) can be found here:  https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ZS1FywxCTsznmxtqvYVRFhWREZegNQZmYOZq9v5jKHQ/pubhtml

Methodology

I imported the Master file from the 2016 Sean Lahman Baseball database into RStudio. I assigned a “DebutDecade” to each player based on their MLB debut date and merged the resulting table with Win Shares and WAR data acquired from the Baseball Gauge @ Seamheads.

I sorted the players by birthplace, debut date and highest single-season Win Shares totals to create three sets of rosters:

  • Retro World Baseball Classic
  • Ballplayers by Birthplaces – Cities
  • Ballplayers by Birthplaces – States or Countries

The Retro World Baseball Classic rosters are compiled using the following rules:

  1. Teams are broken into regions (states, countries or groups thereof)
  2. Regions must have at least 40 players (there are several exceptions)
  3. States with more than 100 players in any selected group are granted team status
  4. Rosters are grouped by “DebutDecade” as defined below
  5. I have added a number of Negro League and Japanese League players to rosters. However, WAR and/or Win Shares totals are absent from the calculations.

Terminology

DebutDecade – grouping of ballplayers based on their Major League debut date. All players making their debut from 1871 through 1900 receive the “1900” DebutDecade designation. After 1900, players are arranged in groups of twenty seasons. Thus, players making their MLB debut from 1901-1920 are classified as “1920”, 1921-1940 are listed as “1940”, etc. up to “2020” which covers 2001-2016.

As defined by Baseball-Reference.com Bullpen:

WARWins Above Replacement “a total-player-value statistic … (which) attempts to measure a player’s value – expressed in wins – over that which would have been contributed by a fictional ‘replacement-level player’ (essentially a AAA-quality player who can be readily acquired by a team at any time for the league’s minimum salary) in the same amount of playing time.”

WSWin Shares “calculated using the formula in the book Win Shares by Bill James. The statistic is meant to assess a player’s value in terms of his ability to help his team win games.”

Best of the Retro WBC

The leaderboards for the Retro World Baseball Classic rosters are based on the single-season Win Shares totals for the top forty players on each squad. The “1900” teams dominate the charts primarily due to pitching usage along with a variety of rules changes prior to the Modern Era. In the early years, the idea of a pitching rotation did not exist and pitchers were not allowed to throw overhand. This allowed teams to carry one pitcher on their roster and in many instances, this individual started every game. Pitchers accrued extremely high innings totals as compared to today’s hurlers. As such, Win Shares totals for aces in the late 1800’s can easily exceed 50+. So it is necessary to adjust for those factors when making player and team comparisons across eras.

There are two charts below. The “Team Total Win Shares” chart simply lists every Retro WBC squad in descending order from highest to lowest team total Win Shares based on the top single-season totals on their 40-man roster. The “Debut Decade” chart groups the teams by their DebutDecade (1900, 1920, 1940, etc.) sorted by team total Win Shares.

1900 Pennsylvania 

Honus Wagner (.354/10/109) paced the Senior Circuit in virtually every major offensive category including WAR (13) and Win Shares (56.7) in 1908. “The Flying Dutchman” collected his sixth batting title and topped the leaderboards in base hits (201), doubles (39), triples (19), RBI, stolen bases (53), OBP (.415), SLG (.542) and total bases (308).

In the Union Association’s lone season of existence (1884), Fred Dunlap delivered a .412 BA, swatted 13 big-flies and registered 160 tallies. Guy Hecker (52-20, 1.80 in 1884), George “Grin” Bradley (45-19, 1.23), Jim A. Devlin (35-25, 2.25), John “Monte” Ward (39-24, 1.74) and Matt Kilroy (46-19, 3.07) all recorded at least 50 Win Shares in their elite seasons.

1900 New York

The old-time New York squad also featured a quintet of workhorses on the mound with 50+ Win Shares, led by Charles Radbourn (59-12, 1.38). “Old Hoss” completed each of his 73 starts, amassing 441 strikeouts in 678.2 innings pitched while posting a WHIP of 0.922. Cy Seymour (.377/8/121) topped the NL in BA, hits (219), doubles (40), triples (21), RBI, SLG (.559) and total bases (325) during a brilliant 1905 campaign. The Gotham group encompassed 11 batsmen with at least 30 Win Shares.

1960 South 

The Southern outfield trio of Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays and Hank Aaron eclipsed 40 Win Shares in their finest seasons. “The Mick” claimed back-to-back AL MVP honors in 1956-57, earning the Triple Crown in ’56 and posting career-highs in batting average (.365) and bases on balls (146) in the subsequent campaign. The “Say Hey Kid” collected 12 consecutive Gold Glove awards (1957-1968) and merited 1965 NL MVP honors with 52 four-baggers, a .398 OBP and .645 SLG. “Hammerin’ Hank” entered the 30/30 club in 1963, leading the circuit with 44 long balls, 130 ribbies, 121 runs and a .586 SLG while pilfering 31 bases in 36 tries. Willie “Stretch” McCovey (.320/45/126) captured 1969 NL MVP honors and sixteen-time Gold Glove third-sacker Brooks Robinson (.317/28/118) secured the 1964 AL MVP award. The USA South region consists of Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma and Tennessee (Texas would have been included geographically, however it has enough players to field its own team).

1940 California

Ted Williams and Joe DiMaggio share the limelight on offense for the 1940 California crew. Returning from three years of military service in World War II, “The Splendid Splinter” (.342/38/123) compiled 11 WAR and 50 Win Shares to seize the 1946 AL MVP hardware, leading the circuit in runs scored (142), bases on balls (156), OBP (.497) and SLG (.667). “The Yankee Clipper” (.357/30/125) recorded his famous 56-game hitting streak and merited 1941 AL MVP honors. A robust middle infield starred Joe “Flash” Gordon (.322/18/103 in ‘42), Eddie Joost (.263/23/81 with 149 BB in ’49) and Joe Cronin (.306/12/126 in ’31). Thornton Lee (22-11, 2.37) completed 30 of 34 starts, paced the AL in ERA and WHIP (1.165) and received his lone All-Star invitation in 1941. Lefty Gomez (26-5, 2.33) finished third in the 1934 AL MVP race and topped the leaderboards in wins, ERA, WHIP (1.133), complete games (25), shutouts (6), innings pitched (281.2) and strikeouts (158).

1980 Southeast 

Steve “Lefty” Carlton (27-10, 1.97) captured his first of four NL Cy Young awards during an astounding 1972 season in which he established career-bests (and led the NL) in wins, ERA, complete games (30), innings pitched (346.1) and strikeouts (310). In the same year, Gaylord Perry (24-16, 1.92) merited AL Cy Young honors, completing 29 of 40 starts and fashioning a WHIP of 0.978. Catfish Hunter registered five successive seasons with at least 20 victories (1971-75) with an aggregate ERA of 2.65. George Brett (.335/30/112) delivered personal-bests in home runs and bases on balls (103) to finish runner-up in the 1985 AL MVP balloting. Jim Rice (.315/46/139) led the Junior Circuit in hits (213), triples (15), home runs, RBI and SLG (.600) en route to securing the 1978 AL MVP trophy. In the middle of a six-year streak with at least 70 stolen bases, Tim “Rock” Raines produced a .320 BA with a career-best 13 triples in ’85.

1920 Ohio 

Benny Kauff (.370/8/95) surfaced in the Federal League in 1914 following a “cup of coffee” with the Yankees two years prior. He claimed the batting crown in successive seasons and paced the fledgling circuit in hits (211), runs (120), doubles (44), stolen bases (75) and OBP (.447) during the ’14 season. “Gorgeous” George Sisler (.407/19/122) seized his first batting crown and established the MLB record for base hits in a single-season (257) in 1920. Ichiro Suzuki eclipsed Sisler’s mark with 262 safeties in 2004.

Chicago, Illinois

The “Windy City” claims the honor as the most productive birthplace in terms of group totals based on the top single-season achievements. The Chi-Town outfield features 1990 American League MVP Rickey Henderson along with top-five finishers Wally Berger (1933 NL), Fred Lynn (1979 AL) and Kirby Puckett (1988 AL). First-sacker Phil Cavarretta (.355/6/97) secured the 1945 NL MVP Award along with his lone batting title. Freddie Lindstrom registered a League-high 231 safeties and posted a .358 BA while placing runner-up in the 1928 NL MVP race. 1968 AL MVP and Cy Young Award-winner Denny McLain tallied 31 victories with a 1.96 ERA and a WHIP of 0.905.

Los Angeles, California

In stark contrast to the primordial Philadelphia squad, the “City of Angels” contingent skews heavily toward the present-day with only 4 of the players on the 25-man roster completing their careers prior to the Expansion Era. No Cy Young award-winners in this bunch but the offense is stacked with all-around talent including 8-time batting champion Tony Gwynn, Duke Snider (.341/40/130 in 1954), “Steady” Eddie Murray and 1988 NL home run leader Darryl Strawberry. The bench offers plenty of speed (Brett Butler, Mitchell Page, Bobby Tolan), power (Cecil Fielder) along with the dual threat posed by Eric “The Red” Davis.

New York, New York

“The Big Apple” amalgamated five boroughs (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island) into one city in 1898. With the exception of Manhattan, the other boroughs are represented separately in the “birth city” section of the Lahman database. As such, the New York, New York roster is denoted here. All but Queens register on the “Top 200” birthplace chart. 1927 AL MVP Lou Gehrig (.373/47/173) leads a splendid cast which includes fellow MVP’s Hank Greenberg (1935 AL) and Alex Rodriguez (2005 AL).  Jack Lynch (37-15, 2.67 for the 1884 Metropolitans) and 1975 AL Cy Young award-winner Jim Palmer (23-11, 2.09) anchor the starting staff.

“Prince” Hal Newhouser averaged 27 wins with a 1.99 ERA over a three-year period (1944-1946), earning back-to-back AL MVP awards along with a runner-up finish in ’46. Ed Reulbach (18-14, 1.42) completed 28 of 29 starts in his inaugural season and established career-bests in ERA and WHIP (0.963). The “Motor City” mound mastery relegates both 1996 Cy Young winners (Pat Hentgen and John Smoltz) to the bullpen. Bill Freehan (.263/25/84) placed second in the 1968 AL MVP balloting and set personal-bests in runs scored, home runs and RBI. Seven years later, slugging first-sacker John Mayberry (.291/34/106) topped the circuit in walks (119) and established career-highs in almost every offensive category.
