Hall of Merit: 1950 Results: Waner and Dihigo Touch Them All on Their First Try For the Hall of Merit!

In his first year of eligibility, Pittsburgh star right fielder Paul Waner  grabbed 95% of the vote to claim the first spot on the ballots for HoM immortality.

In also his first year on the ballot, Negro League and Cuban multi-positional legend Martín Dihigo earned induction by claiming the second most votes. Our fourteenth Negro League inductee, Dihigo’s family should thank voter (and the world’s greatest Dode Paskert fan! :-) David C. Jones for his impassioned plea to everyone to please reconsider the great star’s status on their ballots a few days ago. At the time, Joe Cronin was comfortably in second place, but Dihigo surged strongly and was also helped by a few early voters revising their ballots.

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