15 individuals, one team, and one company were enshrined into the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame Sunday night in Springfield.
Headlining the event was former St. Louis Cardinal reliever, and Major League Baseball Hall-of-Famer Bruce Sutter.
Sutter, of course, got the final out in game seven of the 1982 World Series against the Milwaukee Brewers.
It was the Cardinals last World Series title, until this past season when St. Louis knocked off the Detroit Tigers.
Sutter became the first pitcher never to have started a game to be inducted into Cooperstown last year, on his 13th year of eligibility.
Sutter remains in the top twenty all-time in career saves with 300.
Cardinals General Manager Walt Jocketty was also inducted. Those are just two of the big-names who were on hand for the ceremony.
Bruce Sutter: "This is a great honor, to go in with all these fellas sitting next to me, it's an honor and it's a humbling experience. Winning the World Series, that's the ultimate for a player. I still think the time I stepped onto the field with a Major League Baseball uniform on is still the most special day of my baseball career."
Walt Jocketty: "It's pretty amazing, humbling, to be in there with guys like Lou Brock, Stan Musial, Jack Buck. So it's pretty neat."
Here's the complete list of those inducted:
Bruce Sutter, Walt Jocketty, Curtis McClinton, the former Chiefs running back.
Jim Eisenreich, the former Royal who overcame tourette's syndrome and won a World Series in 1997 with the Marlins.
