Summarizing the credentials of the five inductees who will be enshrined at the Baseball Hall of Fame on July 30 in Cooperstown, N.Y.

Sunday, three more of baseball’s all-time greats are having their names etched into Cooperstown lore.
Outfielder Tim Raines, first baseman Jeff Bagwell and catcher Ivan Rodriguez are being inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame, and former MLB commissioner Bud Selig and front office executive John Schuerholz will also be given the same honor.
Rodriguez, on the other hand, is receiving the honor in his first year of eligibility. While there are plenty of accomplishments on his resume, perhaps none is more remarkable than the fact that no player has caught more games than Rodriguez in the history of the majors.
And finally, Bagwell is one of just 11 players in the history of the big leagues to finish his career with at least 440 home runs and 200 steals.
The ceremony is being broadcast on MLB Network at 1:30, but below is a recap of the event’s most notable moments.
