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.
