Ted Simmons will finally be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame this week. The 2021 National Baseball Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will take place on a Wednesday instead of the traditional Sunday. The induction is at 12:30 p.m. St. Louis time on Wednesday, Sept. 8, on the grounds of the Clark Sports Center in Cooperstown, New York. The Induction Ceremony will be broadcast live exclusively on MLB Network and will be live-streamed on MLB.com.
Simmons was inducted into the Cardinals Hall of Fame at the ceremony where he received his red jacket and a statue of him was unveiled in July. For our coverage of that event CLICK HERE.
The July 24 Awards Presentation honored 2021 Ford C. Frick Award winner for broadcasting excellence, Al Michaels, and the 2020 Frick Award winner, Ken Harrelson; the 2021 Baseball Writers’ Association of America Career Excellence Award winner, Dick Kaegel, and the 2020 BBWAA Career Excellence Award winner, Nick Cafardo; and the 2020 Buck O’Neil Lifetime Achievement Award winner, David Montgomery.
In 2020, both the Induction Ceremony and Awards Presentation were canceled due to the pandemic.
