On October 5, 2015, Daniel Lucius ‘Doc’ Adams appeared on the Hall of Fame ballot for the first time as the National Hall of Fame announced the 10 candidates on the 2016 Pre-integration Era ballot. This marked a major milestone in the efforts to have Doc recognized with enshrinement.

Sadly, he came up 2 votes short for election. Doc will next be eligible for the ballot NEXT YEAR, for 2021 Induction! We are in the home stretch! Thanks for your continued support as we take this final step to achieve the final goal of getting Doc his long overdue recognition.
