Hall of Merit: 1953 Results: WWII Vets Dickey and Greenberg are Welcomed into the Hall of Merit!

In his second year of eligibility, legendary backstop Bill Dickey claimed a robust 91% of the possible votes to become the first man elected this “year.”

In his first year of eligibility, Tiger slugger Hank Greenberg earned 89% of the possible votes to also win induction into the HoM.

Long-time Negro League shortstop Willie Wells had a fine showing in his first year of eligibility and will certainly be a HoMer in a year or two.

Rounding out the top ten were: Mules Suttles, John Beckwith, Billy Herman*, Red Ruffing*, Stan Hack*, Earl Averill and Eppa Rixey.
