Hall of Merit: 1945 Ballot

From many comments on the discussion thread, there appears to be a consensus that Goose Goslin and Willie Foster will be the next HoM selections. Kind of hard to dispute that. But maybe newbies Tony Lazzeri and Heinie Manush, or possibly another backlogger, will fool us.

Returnees include: John Beckwith, Eppa Rixey, Clark Griffith, Wes Ferrell, George Van Haltren and Jake Beckley.

Hall of Merit: 1944 Ballot Results: The Hall of Merits Says Yes to “The Iron Horse” and “The Fordham Flash!”

By unanimous vote (the fifth inductee to win that distinction), the Yankees’ tragic hero Lou Gehrig was inducted in his first year of eligibility.

In his second year of eligibility, second baseman great Frankie Frisch received the second most votes to win the second spot on the ballot and immortality.

First-year candidate Goose Goslin made a very strong showing and looks ready for induction himself in ‘45. Pitching star Wes Ferrell also made the top-ten as a newbie candidate.

Rounding out the top-ten were: Bill Foster (possibly in ‘45?), John Beckwith, Eppa Rixey, Clark Griffith, George Van Haltren and Jake Beckley.

Hall of Merit: Tony Lazzeri

As a conversationalist, Lazzeri made “Silent Cal” Coolidge appear to be as loquacious as Mathew Lesko.

Hall of Merit: Heinie Manush

When you think about it, one would have to be a Manush type of guy to be named Heinie today. :-)
