Hall of Merit: 1952 Results: Gibson and Ott Pummel Down the Doors of the Hall of Merit!

With almost 100% of the possible votes for election (barely breaking the NeL record of 99.2% set by Oscar Charleston in 1943), Negro League legend Josh Gibson was elected to the Hall of Merit in his first year of eligibility. He is now the HoM’s fifteen Negro League induction.

In also his first year appearing on a ballot, New York Giants slugger Mel Ott earned a healthy 95% of the possible votes for election to become the second player to be inducted this “year.”

All-time great catcher Bill Dickey, in his first year of eligibility, appears to be headed for immortality himself within a few years with a strong showing as he placed third.

Rounding out the top-ten were: Mule Suttles, John Beckwith, Earl Averill, Eppa Rixey, Wes Ferrell, Biz Mackey and Hughie Jennings.
