ST. LOUIS, Mo. – The St. Louis Cardinals have revealed Steve Carlton, Keith Hernandez, Matt Morris, Edgar Renteria and Lee Smith as the five players nominated for possible induction into the St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame, presented by Edward Jones.
Fans can view the Cardinals Hall of Fame ballot and cast their selections online starting Monday, March 1, at cardinals.com/HOF.
St. Louis Cardinal baseball airs each year over KZRG sister station AM 1230 KZYM “The Talker.”
The player with the most fan votes after voting concludes on Saturday, April 17, will be selected to join the 2020 Class of Tom Herr, John Tudor and Bill White for induction into the Cardinals Hall of Fame during an enshrinement ceremony on Saturday, August 21. The sole member of the 2021 Cardinals Hall of Fame Induction Class will be announced in early May.
“Although the pandemic has created many challenges for our sport and organization, we will continue to celebrate and honor our team’s history by inducting another Cardinals player into our Hall of Fame during the 2021 season,” said Cardinals Chairman and CEO, Bill DeWitt Jr.
The St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame was established to recognize the exceptional careers and significant achievements of the greatest players in Cardinals history. To be eligible, the nominees must have played for the Cardinals for at least three seasons and be retired as a player from Major League Baseball for at least three years.
Each member of the Cardinals Hall of Fame is permanently enshrined in the Cardinals Hall of Fame Gallery presented by Edward Jones located on the second floor of Cardinals Nation in Ballpark Village, just outside the entrance to the team’s museum.
The Hall of Fame Gallery is free and open to the public.
