With this award, Simmons joins other Giant greats in the Hall of Fame such as Willie Mays, Orlando Cepeda, and Juan Marichal.
Players, broadcasters, and fans alike give Simmons a huge amount of respect, and they displayed it by backing him in votes for this award. However, Simmons remain humble, and says he considers himself to be lucky, not a superstar.
