Hall of Fame Class of 2020

Congratulations to the Baseball Hall of Fame Class of 2020: Ted Simmons, Marvin Miller, Derek Jeter, and Larry Walker!

All are picks I have no objection to, so I'm happy. Simmons is one of those guys whose omission didn't bother me too much, but if they're going to put him in, I won't complain; he had a great career. Despite all the love Yadier Molina gets, I still have Simmons as the #1 Cardinals catcher of all time.

I've updated my list of first major league home runs by Hall of Famers to reflect the three new player inductees (electees, technically?). There are also three new pitchers added to the list, as Roberto Rodriguez, Ron Darling, and Dennis Martinez weren't any other Hall of Famer's first victim.
