Saturday welcomes the Baseball Hall of Fame Classic in Cooperstown, but it also brings something a little more special to fans of pop culture. The Hall will finally induct Homer Simpson and celebrate the classic Simpsons episode “Homer At Bat.” The special induction was announced back in February as a highlight of the HoF Classic festivities, featuring a roundtable discussion with Wade Boggs, Ozzie Smith, and a number of folks behind the original episode. Homer Simpson even got a chance to address his induction in an “official” statement according to The Statesman:

In a prepared “statement,” Simpson said it is “truly an honor for me to enter the Baseball Hall of Fame.”

“My record for eating hot dogs will never be broken. I’ve been a fan for 40 years, which is how long some games take. And I can’t wait for the ceremony in Canton, Ohio.”
