Cooperstown, N.Y. - Six new members were inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame at the annual ceremony on the lawn of the Clark Sports Center, Sunday.
Mike Mussina, Harold Baines, Lee Smith, Edgar Martinez, the late Roy Halladay, and Mariano Rivera all joined baseball's most exclusive fraternity.
In front of a crowd of 55,000 (second largest to 2007's record 82,000), the five living inductees spoke about their careers, what led them to this point, and thanked the people who helped them along the way.
For Halladay, who died tragically in a crash while piloting a plane in 2017, his widow Brandy gave an emotional speech where she attempted to vocalize what she thought her husband would say if he were present.
Former Yankee all-star oufielder Bernie Williams was a special guest on stage, playing the "Star Spangled Banner" and a rendition of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" on guitar.
