Hall of Merit: 1942 Ballot Discussion

The ballot thread will be posted one week later than normal (Jan.3).

Bill Terry is the only position player this “year” that should make any impact on our ballots. As for pitchers, Firpo Marberry had a unique enough career that he may show some considerable strength as a candidate.

My favorite ballplayer of all-time, it always pains me to read this even though he died 24 years before I was even born.

Much obliged to Dan G and Chris Cobb for the lists again!

Better in his own profession than his famous pugilist namesake ever was, but does that make him a HoMer?

All you need to know is the words Ruth and Hornsby for this ballot. You could even place Jack Chesbro, Rube Marquard and Tommy McCarthy somewhere between 3 and 15 for all it’s going to do (which is nothing).

Was Mr. Looper…er, I mean, Mr. Hooper the best BoSox rightfielder before Dwight Evans?

The greatest leftfielder of the 1870’s, his place in baseball history is obscured by numerous factors.

It’s a shame when you think about what he could have been. However, what he actually was wasn’t too bad either.
