Dodgers News: Don Sutton Honored During Hall Of Fame Ceremony

The National Baseball Hall of Fame held its induction ceremony this week to enshrine Derek Jeter, Larry Walker, Ted Simmons and Marvin Miller after the 2020 ceremony was delayed due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Since the last gathering in Cooperstown in 2019, 10 Hall of Famers passed away, including Los Angeles Dodgers legends Don Sutton and Tommy Lasorda. Sutton, who was elected into the Hall of Fame in 1998, died at 75 years old on Jan. 18, 2021.

During the Hall of Fame ceremony, Sutton’s life and career was remembered with a video tribute that was shown on MLB Network and shared to Twitter with a message thanking them by his son Daron Sutton.
