Hall of Merit: 1946 Ballot Results: Sluggers Turkey Stearnes and Al Simmons are the Latest Hall of Merit Additions!

With the most votes for this election, Detroit Stars’ legend Turkey Stearnes gained admission into the Hall of Merit in his first year of eligibility with 97% of the vote. He also has the honor of becoming the twelfth Negro Leaguer to receive HoM recognition.

In also his first year of eligibility, Philadelphia Athletics’ star Al Simmons trailed Stearnes only slightly with an impressive 94% of the vote to win the second spot.

Mule Suttles had a fine debut and appears to be a force to be reckoned with.

Rounding out the top-ten were: John Beckwith, Eppa Rixey, Earl Averill, Wes Ferrell, Clark Griffith, Hughie Jennings and George Sisler.
