Well, as everyone knows, Doc Adams was not elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame this year and inexplicably, he wasn’t even named to the Early Baseball Era ballot.
So, there is clearly still a lot of work left to do.
As promised, the campaign continues as we look for additional opportunities to spread the word about Doc Adams’ contributions and role in the early development and survival of our National Pastime. In that vein, we have established a Twitter account (@DocAdamsBB) that will serve as another forum to communicate our posts (email subscriptions, Facebook, and now Twitter).
We will continue to post event anniversaries, milestones, Doc Adams appearances in the media, and upcoming events.
We also hope to continue to have periodic guest historian, author, etc. “endorsement” posts in support of Adams’ Hall of Fame candidacy.
However, if it does not happen this year, I will not let this rest. I will continue to work toward what I want to see: Doc’s plaque at the Hall. This quest is as much for my father and grandfather as it is for Doc, and none of those gentlemen would approve if I gave up. Imagine how baseball might be now if Doc had given up in the early years of the Knickerbockers.“Should Doc Adams Be in the Hall of Fame?” “Of course.”, Dazzy Vance Chronicles, Marjorie Adams
We won’t give up the mission either! The decade long adventure continues. #DocAdams, #DocAdamsBB #baseballhall
