Baseball Hall of Fame Enshrines Three of Its Greatest Leaders

Baseball Hall of Fame Enshrines Three of Its Greatest Leaders

SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM
In addition to pitchers Tom Glavine and Greg Maddux, and slugger Frank Thomas, baseball inducted three of its greatest leaders into the Hall of Fame this year: managers Bobby Cox, Tony La Russa and Joe Torre.

There was little doubt that the trio belongs in Cooperstown. Among all the managers in baseball history, La Russa (2,728), Bobby Cox (2,504), and Torre (2,326) rank #3-5 in all-time wins. They trail only the legendary Connie Mack (3,731 wins), who had more losses than wins (but owned the Philadelphia A’s for 50 years and could not be fired), and the iconic John McGraw (2,763), whose career also began in the Dead Ball Era.
