Deacon White into the Baseball HOF!

Today the Pre-Integration Committee (from Baseball’s beginnings to 1947) has announced that there will be three new members to the Baseball Hall of Fame. To become elected, the nominees on the ballot, which contained six former players, and four non-players had to receive at least 12 of 16 (75%) votes to enter.

Of the three selected, only one was a player. That was Deacon White, a barehanded Catcher in the 1870’s. White twice won the Batting Title and was a three time leader in Runs Batted In. He was ranked #30 on our notinhalloffame baseball list.
