Minnie Minoso and Buck O'neil are among the 39 names on a special ballot for the Hall of fame, the ballot is for players in the Negro leagues and "pre" Negro leagues

The nine pre-Negro leagues candidates are Frank Grant, Pete Hill, Home Run Johnson, Jose Mendez, Spot Poles, Dick Redding, Louis Santop, Ben Taylor and Sol White

The 30 Negro leagues candidates are Newt Allen, John Beckwith, William Bell, Chet Brewer, Ray Brown, Willard Brown, Bill Byrd, Andy Cooper, Rap Dixon, John Donaldson, Sammy Hughes, Fats Jenkins, Dick Lundy, Biz Mackey, Effa Manley, Oliver Marcell, Minoso, Dobie Moore, Alejandro Oms, O'Neil, Red Parnell, Alex Pompez, Cum Posey, George Scales, Mile Suttles, Candy Jim Taylor, C.I. Taylor, Cristobal Torriente, JL Wilkinson and Jud Wilson

hopefully this vote by the hall of fame will bring the recognition to these players that they so richly deserve

Cristobal Torriente, Mule Suttles and O'Neill are not already in????

If Minoso is not unanimously elected, then this panel is no better than the main H.O.F. panel.

No clue. You gotta get Bill James to join this site. Then, among other things, Hootie and I can climb all over him about his extreme overrating of Dead Ball Era pitchers.

from the hall of fame website

National Geographic, in conjunction with the Hall of Fame, will published a book called Shades of Glory, in February, using material from the research study. This definitive, detailed, richly illustrated book will not only cover the game as it developed on the field, but it will also provide a review of how baseball played an important role within the black community, particularly during the days of segregation
