One of the all-time greats who I think we might see in the final 8, Rogers Hornsby, leads the field against fellow Hall-of-Famers George Davis and Harry Heilmann. They are joined by a couple of Yankees in Roy White and Don Mattingly as well as Frank Schulte, Del Pratt, and George Case. Top 4 make the cut and head to Round 5 automatically.
