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 . . .

Post your Pete Hill commentary here if you will - I’ll start doing this for Negro Leaguers so we have a repository to go to for info on them. These guys don’t have B-R pages, etc., so it’ll be nice to have somwhere to go. I’ll also post one for Rube Foster, Bill Monroe and Sol White, the only other Negro Leaguers that have garnered significant support to date.

Hall of Merit: 1926 Results - Grant and Magee elected

After 27 elections without electing a Negro League player, The Hall of Merit elects its second in as many years in 1926. Frank Grant topped the voting with 736 points, moving past Joe McGinnity and Sherry Magee. Magee was elected as well, with 722 points.

Bobby Wallace finished 3rd with 653 points, edging McGinnity (651). McGinnity was the top returning vote getter, but slipped to 4th this time around.

Jimmy Sheckard finished 5th. Sam Thompson moved into 6th place, passing Bob Caruthers who finished 7th.

Completing the top 10 were Dickey Pearce, Lip Pike and newcomer Joe Jackson. Jackson was boycotted on several ballots due to his actions during the 1919 World Series, and should move up significantly in 1927.
