Cardinals induct four into Cardinal Hall Of Fame

From a historical standpoint, Simmons said there were really only four franchises _ Brooklyn/Los Angeles, New York/San Francisco Giants, the New York Yankees and the Cardinals.

“They’ve got all the Hall of Famers and all the pennants. Those four places are huge,” Simmons.

“When one of them, in this case, the Cardinals, embraces you, brings you forward and lifts you up, along with their fan base, which says, ‘We really think there’s something special about you’. . . it was a little surprising the way people got vocal like they did. . . you can’t ignore it. This really has been a special day.”
