Hall of Merit: 1921 Results: Collins and Bennett elected

Jimmy Collins and Charlie Bennett are newest members of the Hall of Merit. They are two of the greatest fielders their positions have ever seen. Collins was elected in his 8th year of eligibility. Bennett, 66, has been on the ballot since 1899, and was elected in his 23rd year! Except for Bob Caruthers, all of the players ahead of him on the 1899 ballot have been inducted. Two players below Bennett on that ballot (Cal McVey & Pud Galvin) have also been elected.

Joe McGinnity flew past Bobby Wallace and is solidly entrenched in 3rd place. Grant “Home Run” Johnson, a star Negro League SS also outpointed Wallace, it was Johnson’s first year on the ballot. Wallace finished 5th.

Frank Grant, another Negro League star, finished 6th, moving past Jimmy Sheckard in the tally. Bob Caruthers moved into 8th place, swapping positions with slugger Sam Thompson. Rube Waddell edged Hughie Jennings by one point for 10th place.

Other newcomers included Roger Bresnahan in 12th place, Tommy Leach (21st) and Joe Tinker (39th).

Here goes . . . 2 electees this year, and every year except 1923 between now and 1930. This is the beginning of a run where we’re going to do some of our most important work, I urge everyone to take another look at everything just to be sure.
