Hall of Merit: 1951 Results: Say Hello to the Newest Members of the Hall of Merit - Foxx and Cronin!

In his first “year” on the ballot, an almost unanimous electorate gave legendary slugger Jimmie Foxx 99% of the possible points for induction into the HoM.

In his second year eligible, outstanding shortstop Joe Cronin received 87% of the possible points to easily gain enough votes to become the second inductee this “year.”

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

Hall of Merit: Reevaluating Negro League Pitchers

Marc sent this to me today:

Hi John,

I am preparing some info and discussion (hoping to start a re-eval) of
“second tier” NeL pitchers, meaning anybody we haven’t yet elected.
There is a general NeL discussion thread but it now has about 250 posts
on it, a bit of clutter. And there are discussion threads for individual
NeL pitchers…

But I wonder if we could have a thread for “Re-evaluate NeL Pitchers” or
something like that. I think this is the cluster of players we know the
least about. Thanks, John.
