Welcome to Cooperstown, Ted Simmons! #HOF2020
Welcome to Cooperstown, Marvin Miller! #HOF2020
When someone starts to sing “Happy Birthday” to you in public… Happy 51st to Hall of Famer Mike Mussina!
Happy birthday to the man who set the benchmark for catching greatness. We hope you have a great day, @johnnybench_5 !
“If you know in your heart that you called one wrong, you just try to call the next one right. Never ‘even up.’ That just makes two wrong decisions.” Words to live by, from Hall of Famer Jocko Conlan, who was born #OTD in 1899. Photo: Charles Conlon
52 years ago today, Stan Musial announced his resignation as @cardinals GM. Much like his playing career, Musial’s career as an executive was one of excellence: In his single-season tenure, St. Louis won 101 games and its eighth World Series title.
A BIG happy birthday to big Lee Smith. We hope you enjoy your first birthday as a Hall of Famer!

Joe Morgan’s 1975 season was incredible - a .327 batting average, 94 RBI and 67 stolen bases - but the @reds star managed to get even better the following year, and as a result he became the second back-to-back NL MVP winner #OTD in 1976. (Dick Raphael/National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum )
