COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (AP) — Seven of baseball's living legends will be special guests at the concert celebrating the Baseball Hall Of Fame's 75th anniversary.

Hall of Famers Rod Carew, Rollie Fingers, Carlton Fisk, Juan Marichal, Phil Niekro, Ozzie Smith and Dave Winfield will be on stage introducing various segments throughout the concert Aug. 2. The event will celebrate baseball through music, film and video.

Grammy Award winner and longtime baseball fan Paul Simon also is in the lineup. He'll perform three songs at the concert on the grounds of the Clark Sports Center.

The Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra will serve as the "house band" for the evening, and former New York Yankees star Bernie Williams will perform on the guitar.

The annual Hall of Fame induction ceremony is July 27.
