Jack Glasscock was the best shortstop of the 19th century and is one of the top players outside of the Hall of Fame. His 61.5 WAR rates ahead of eight Hall of Fame shortstops while his adjWAR of 73.3 is ahead of thirteen Hall of Famers. Like Deacon White, Glasscock’s adjWAR gets a boost because of the short schedules of his era.
