Hall of Merit: 1945 Ballot Results: The Goose and Big Bill are Certified as Hall of Merit Inductees!

With a record 68 candidates who earned at least one vote on one of our 52 ballots, Senators and Tigers slugger Goose Goslin pushed through the crowd fairly easily to claim the top spot for induction into the Hall of Merit in his second year of eligibility. 

In his third year as a candidate, lefty pitching great Willie Foster earned the second spot for immortality. He becomes the eleventh Negro Leaguer to claim that distinction (his half-brother Rube Foster was elected in 1932).

Rounding out the top ten were John Beckwith, Eppa Rixey, Clark Griffith, Hughie Jennings, Wes Ferrell, Joe Sewell, George Sisler and George Van Haltren.

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.
