GARY CARTER | Inducted 2003
KNOWN AS the Kid, Carter hit 324 home runs during his 19-year career with the Expos, Mets, Giants and Dodgers. One of the premier catchers of his era, Carter was an 11-time All-Star and two-time All-Star Game MVP.
HANK AARON | Inducted 1982
DESPITE hate mail and death threats, Aaron relentlessly pursued Babe Ruth's home run record. When he retired, Aaron held several important big league records, including home runs (755) and RBIs (2,297).
EDDIE MURRAY | Inducted 2003
THE CONSISTENTLY excellent first baseman is the only switch-hitter with more than 500 homers and 3,000 hits. Murray averaged 31 homers and 114 RBIs from 1982 to '85. The '77 Rookie of the Year was also a three-time Gold Glove winner. His two homers in Game 5 of the '83 World Series helped Baltimore clinch the title.
SPARKY ANDERSON | Inducted 2000
THE FIRST manager to win World Series titles in both leagues, Anderson earned victories with the Reds in 1975 and '76 and the Tigers in '84. His frequent use of the bullpen, specifically with the Reds, earned him the nickname Captain Hook. When his managerial career ended in 1995, Anderson ranked third alltime in wins with 2,194.
