Homer Simpson will be 'inducted' into Baseball Hall of Fame this Saturday
Cooperstown will pay tribute to "Homer at the Bat"
Here's your unexpected statement of the day: Homer Simpson will be "inducted" into the Baseball Hall of Fame this weekend.
You read that correctly. Cooperstown is opening its doors to America's favorite cartoon family Saturday as part of a larger celebration of the show, specifically the "Homer at the Bat" episode that featured numerous Hall of Famers in all their animated glory.
Wade Boggs and Ozzie Smith were among the players who appeared in that episode, and both will partake in a roundtable alongside various members of the show's creative and production teams.
In addition to the roundtable, Homer will celebrate his "induction" with a speech. There will then be a ceremonial ribbon-cutting to introduce a new Simpsons-themed display.
You can find out more details at the Hall of Fame's official site.
