Plot Synopsis

Each year since 1939 -- skipping years when no individuals were elected (1940, 1941, 1943, 1950, 1958, 1960) -- the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum has hosted an Induction Ceremony to honor iconic players, managers, umpires, executives and pioneers most recently elected to join its halls. Members of the Baseball Writers' Association of America (BBWAA) vote each year for eligible players based upon the player's record, playing ability, integrity, sportsmanship, character, and contributions to the team(s) on which the player played. Any candidate receiving votes on seventy-five percent (75%) of the ballots cast is elected to membership in the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

The Induction Ceremony was also available via a webcast at www.baseballhall.org. The ceremony also features the introductions of an expected 50 Hall of Famers, including 2015 inductees and MLB Network analysts Pedro Martinez and John Smoltz.
