ORLANDO: Joe Torre, Bobby Cox and Tony La Russa were elected to the Major League Baseball’s Hall of Fame on Monday under the expansion era ballot. The three managers will be officially inducted into Cooperstown in July, 2014. Torre is the most well known of the three managers to be enshrined and now serves as the executive vice president for baseball operations for Major League Baseball. All three were the dominant figures in American baseball since the mid-1990s. They rank in the top five in manager wins, with well over 2,000 each on their resumes. Torre is fifth on the all-time manager win list with 2,326 victories. La Russa is third with 2,728 wins and Cox is fourth with 2,504.
