Homer Simpson himself will be inducted in to the HOF during the ceremony, joining his “co-stars” from that episode Ken Griffey Jr., Ozzie Smith and Wade Boggs.
According to a release from Cooperstown:

There will also be a Simpsons themed exhibit at Cooperstown, and the show will be honoured prior to the Hall of Fame Classic legends game taking place that afternoon.
