The Simpsons have made history once again. This past Saturday, Homer Simpson was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the episode Homer at the Bat. With a new Simpson’s exhibit on the way, Homer’s plaque will be displayed amongst other memorabilia that relates to that episode.
In a prepared statement, Homer had this too say:
“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.”
It should be noted that Canton, Ohio is actually the Football Hall of Fame. You can see Homer achieve greatness in a clip from the episode Homer at the Bat below!
