Thanks for joining us for Induction Weekend this past July—we can't wait to see you in 2017! Members of the Baseball Writers' Association of America will vote on the 2017 Hall of Fame class in the coming months, and the inductees will be announced in January 2017. Next year's induction weekend will take place on July 28-31, 2017. We hope you join us to celebrate baseball in Cooperstown.
2016 Baseball Hall of Fame Inductees
Inducted as part of the Class of 2016 were two of baseball's greats: Ken Griffey, Jr., who played 22 seasons in the MLB and spent most of his career with the Seattle Mariners and Cincinnati Reds, and Mike Piazza, who is best known for his seasons spent with the New York Mets and Los Angeles Dodgers.
Ken Griffey, Jr.
With 2,781 hits, 630 career home runs (6th on the all-time list), 1,836 RBIs, seven Silver Sluggers, 10 Gold Gloves, 13 All-Star Game appearances and the 1997 AL MVP – it's no surprise that 'The Kid,' was practically unanimously voted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.
One of the greatest hitting catchers of all time, Piazza hit 427 career home runs and 1,335 RBIs, was a 12-time All-Star and a 10-time Silver Slugger Award winner. Piazza's highest career slugging percentage and OPS for a catcher make him a natural fit for the Hall of Fame.
