2015 Cardinals Hall of Fame Announcement on FOX Sports Midwest

As a member of the St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame Red Ribbon Committee, who nominated the Veteran Era player to be inducted this year and set the ballot for the fan vote for the two Modern Era players to go in, I am delighted to share the details of the announcement plans for the Cardinals Hall of Fame Class of 2015.

The identities of the winners will be shared with the public for the first time during a special to be aired on FOX Sports Midwest this coming Monday, May 4 at 6:00 p.m. CT.

Fans selected two players for induction from a ballot that included Steve Carlton, Bob Forsch, Keith Hernandez, Mark McGwire, Matt Morris, Edgar Renteria, Ted Simmons and Joe Torre. In total, there should be four former Cardinals greats again enshrined this year, with the fourth being a team selection. Details on the nominees can be found at The Cardinal Nation.

Announcement plans:

  • The Cardinals’ 2015 Hall of Fame induction class will be revealed on FOX Sports Midwest in a 30-minute special Monday at 6 p.m. CT
  • Dan McLaughlin hosts, joined by Cardinals President Bill DeWitt III, from the Cardinals Hall of Fame and Museum.
  • The 2015 Cardinals Hall of Fame enshrinement ceremony will take place Saturday, Aug. 15, at FOX Sports Midwest Live! in Ballpark Village, and will be televised on FOX Sports Midwest.
  • Monday’s show will be preceded by an encore presentation of last year’s HOF enshrinement ceremony, and followed by Cardinals Live pregame and Cubs-Cardinals.
