Donaldson on Hall of Fame Ballot

John Donaldson has been included on the Early Game Ballot for possible induction into the the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York. The Hall of Fame cited both his on-field accomplishments and helping to establish the barnstorming business model that helped keep Black teams profitable, in announcing his inclusion on the ballot. A committee will meet in the next two weeks in preparation for the annual winter meetings in Orlando to judge his worthiness for baseball’s highest honor. The announcement will occur on Sunday, December 5th. Glasgow named its baseball field in his honor last year.
