The members of this year's National Baseball Hall of Fame class have achieved the highest honor bestowed in MLB. They are All-Stars, Cy Young Award winners, members of the 3,000 hit club -- they've done it all. They look back upon their MLB careers and quote Caesar.

And so Craig Biggio, Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez and John Smoltz have now turned their attention to a new challenge: Stand-up comedy. The best place to start? The Late Show with David Letterman, of course.
