ST. LOUIS- For the first time since 2019, the eyes of the Major League Baseball world are focused on Cooperstown, New York, where the class of 2020, including former Cardinals Larry Walker and Ted Simmons, are being inducted into baseball immortality.

But missing in the pageantry of the festivities are ten Hall of Famers who have died within the last year, including Cardinal legends Lou Brock and Bob Gibson. Brock passed away September 6, 2020, while Gibson died October 2.

Hall of Fame manager Joe Torre, a teammate of both Cardinals, introduced a video narrated by Johnny Bench, which also paid tribute to Hank Aaron, Joe Morgan, Whitey Ford, Al Kaline, Tommy Lasorda, Don Sutton, Tom Seaver and Phil Niekro.
