Former Yankee Manager Joe Torre Elected to Baseball Hall of Fame

Retired managers Tony La Russa and Bobby Cox were also unanimously elected

Former Yankee manager Joe Torre has been unanimously elected to the baseball Hall of Fame by the expansion era committee, along with retired managers Tony La Russa and Bobby Cox.
Each of the inductees won more than 2,000 games in managerial careers that spanned more than four decades. Torre became the fifth manager to win at least four World Series titles. La Russa won championships with Oakland and St. Louis. Cox led Atlanta to one championship and 14 straight division titles.
The announcement was made Monday at the winter meetings. They will be inducted July 27 in Cooperstown, N.Y., along with any players chosen by the Baseball Writers' Association of America.

Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine, 300-game winners, are among the newcomers to the writers' ballot, with results announced Jan. 8.
