First-off we did Ted Simmons wrong since his career average was .285 which is much higher than Andruw Jones' career .254 BA. Simmons had 248 HR's which is among the best (13th) all time for a primary catcher. Simmons' speech was the best from any of the three players although Larry Walker and Derek Jeter acquitted themselves well.
10 HOFers passed away over the 2 year period but only 4 people were inducted. We feel and discuss that there could easily be 30 or more that could be inducted which would still keep the percentage of players at 1%.
