Hall of Merit: 1947 Results: Grove and Hartnett, WS Combatants in ‘29, Reunite as the Newest Hall of Meriters!

In his first year of eligibility, A’s and Bosox ace Lefty Grove became the sixth unanimous selection in the history of the Hall of Merit (our fiftieth election!).

Another newbie, legendary backstop Gabby Hartnett was the electorate’s choice for the second spot. He earned a robust 92% of the vote.

Jud Wilson, another first-year candidate, made a big splash with the voters and will be certainly elected sometime in the future.

Rounding out the top-ten were: Mule Suttles (still looking strong!), John Beckwith, Eppa Rixey, Wes Ferrell, Earl Averill, Hughie Jennings and Clark Griffith.

Hall of Merit: 1946 Ballot Results: Sluggers Turkey Stearnes and Al Simmons are the Latest Hall of Merit Additions!

With the most votes for this election, Detroit Stars’ legend Turkey Stearnes gained admission into the Hall of Merit in his first year of eligibility with 97% of the vote. He also has the honor of becoming the twelfth Negro Leaguer to receive HoM recognition.

In also his first year of eligibility, Philadelphia Athletics’ star Al Simmons trailed Stearnes only slightly with an impressive 94% of the vote to win the second spot.

Mule Suttles had a fine debut and appears to be a force to be reckoned with.

Rounding out the top-ten were: John Beckwith, Eppa Rixey, Earl Averill, Wes Ferrell, Clark Griffith, Hughie Jennings and George Sisler.
