Bob’s ballot:

It’s getting harder again. There are a bunch of weak D and strong E Grade candidates, after the three A and B Graders. I count 20 that I wouldn’t hold my nose for, if they were to be elected by us.

1. Cobb
2. Speaker
3. Torriente
4. Johnson
5. Shocker
6. Coveleskie
7. Burns
8. Konetchy
9. Groh
10. Fowler

The other 10: Adams, Bender, Cooper, Cravath, Fournier, Hill, Hooper, Pratt, Shawkey and Youngs

I was going to put Wally Pipp #10, but he took ill, so I replaced him.

Terry’s ballot:

1: Ty Cobb
2: Tris Speaker
3: Christobal Torriente
4: Harry Hooper
5: Grant Johnson
6: Pete Hill
7: Gavy Cravath
8: Chief Bender
9: George Burns
10: Dobie Moore

Honorable Mention
Heinie Groh
Urban Shocker
Stan Coveleski

Results:

In a shocking turn of events, Bobby Mathews made a comeback and swept the 1934 election.
