Former St. Louis Cardinals Catcher Ted Simmons Unviels Statue

Brian and Alice Weaver wear catchers gear, checking out the new statue for their favorite former St. Louis Cardinals catcher and future National Baseball Hall of Fame member Ted Simmons, outside of Busch Stadium in St. Louis on Saturday, July 31, 2021. Simmons, who will be inducted into the Hall of Fame on September 8, 2021, played for St. Louis from 1968-1980. At the time of his retirement in 1988, Simmons led all catchers in career hits and doubles and ranked second in RBIs behind Yogi Berra and second in total bases behind Carlton Fisk.
