Cardinals Hall of Fame to welcome four
ST. LOUIS (KPLR) – The St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame announced its Class of 2015 on Monday.
Ted Simmons and Bob Forsch were voted in by the fans. Simmons, a catcher, was an eight-time all-star in the 1970s. His battery mate, Forsch, threw a pair of no-hitters and is third all-time among Cardinals pitchers with 163 wins. Forsch died in 2011.
A red ribbon committee chose Curt Flood, the seven-time Gold Glove winner, best known for his legal battles for free agency.
And ownership selected long-time instructor George Kissell, who spent nearly 70 years with the Cardinals organization.
The induction ceremonies will be in August.
