A collision of the Hall's two-tiered voting process and the first real referendum on baseball's Steroid Era has produced an induction weekend unlike any in recent memory. For the first time in nearly 50 years, none of the guests of honor will be present.
The Baseball Hall of Fame is starting a drug education program for students and young adults _ in the same year Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and Sammy Sosa will appear on ballot for the first time after careers tainted by steroid accusations.
Hall President Jeff Idelson says he "cannot think of a more fitting musician to pair with the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra."
"As one of baseball's most prolific power hitters for a decade, Ralph struck fear into the hearts of the best pitchers of baseball's Golden Era despite his easygoing nature, disarming humility and movie-star smile," Hall President Jeff Idelson said in a statement.
