Hall of Merit: 1927 Results - Negro Leaguer Elected for 3rd Consecutive Year

Joe Jackson overcame his first-year boycott and Pete Hill became the 3rd Negro Leaguer elected to the Hall of Merit, joining Grant Johnson and Frank Grant.

After being left off 27 ballots in 1926 (presumably for his role in the 1919 Black Sox scandal), Jackson was only missing on 3.5 ballots for 1927, and he easily won the election with 875 points.

Hill was elected in his first year of eligibility, edging out Joe McGinnity and Bobby Wallace.

Jimmy Sheckard, Sam Thompson, Bob Caruthers, Dickey Pearce and Lip Pike finished 5-9, repeating their finish from 1926. Jake Beckley rounded out the top 10.

Hall of Merit: Hall of Merit heads to Charlotte

I’m heading to Charlotte today, where I’ll be meeting up with Jeff M. for a beer before the Rush concert tonight. That should be hopefully, if we can connect in a city that is about 400 miles away for each of us . . .

Anyway, if any of you all are in the Charlotte area and

a) know somewhere that would be easy for Jeff and I to meet each other at, near the Verizon Ampitheatre

b) want to join us

Let me know, ASAP.

I’ll post my cell phone in the thread, feel free to call, but try to do it this morning if you can . . . stupid AT&T roaming is $.69 a minute once I get out of VA . . .
