Twenty-five years after clearing The Wall, Carlton Fisk and Tony Perez enter the Hall.
Linked by dramatic home runs in the 1975 World Series, "Pudge" and "Doggie" were both inducted into the Hall of Fame on Sunday. Fisk played more games (2,226) and hit more home runs (351) than any other catcher in baseball history. Perez was the leader of the "Big Red Machine" and drove in 1,652 runs in his 23-year career.
The Class of 2000 also included former manager Sparky Anderson, 19th century player Bid McPhee and Negro League star Turkey Stearnes.
