1935 Election Results: The Hall of Merit Goes “Up the Middle” By Selecting Collins and Lloyd!

Second baseman Eddie Collins received the most votes this “year” in his second year of eligibility. The greatest at his position during the teens, “Cocky” had less competition this time since he didn’t have to fight it out with immortals Cobb and Speaker.

Another “monster” returnee from ‘34, Negro League shortstop John Henry Lloyd earned the highest percentage of votes ever for a second place inductee with 91.9%. The greatest shortstop of the 1910s, “Pop” became the sixth Negro Leaguer to be elected so far.

Negro League pitching legend Smokey Joe Williams is poised to be an inductee next year with an extremely strong third pace finish. Other returnees with much support were Cristóbal Torriente, Heinie Groh and Stan Coveleski.

Rounding out the top ten were Jake Beckley, Lip Pike, Max Carey (his first year of eligibility) and Rube Waddell.

Thanks to Don F, Evan Reich and Ron Wargo for their help double-checking the numbers!

Looks like the 15th column is cut off. Can it be fixed?
   3. Evan Posted: September 28, 2004 at 08:43 PM (#883151)
How so?
   4. DavidFoss Posted: September 28, 2004 at 08:46 PM (#883158)
How so?

I agree... it looks fine to me. Either something is strange with Guapo's browser or John fixed it.

I didn't do anything extra. Must be some glitch with Guapo's browser.

It looks fine to me now as well. How strange.

I just wanted to be able to see that other vote for Wilbur Cooper. It makes me feel better.
