Maine Baseball HOF
Merrill, Norman "Normie" (1977)
Merrill gained early baseball fame with a no-hit pitching performance for Barnstable Mass in the Cape Cod league. Signed by the Cleveland Indians, he had a 15-7 record with the New Orleans Pelicans in 1938 and a 16-7 mark with Wilkes-Barre PA of the Eastern league in '39. He pitched for Macon GA in the Sally League in 1940 but his career was cut short by a shoulder injury and World War II. He returned to Augusta to become Cony High Schools biggest booster and hardest working volunteer worker for more than 35 years.
