Joe Torre inducted into the Hall of Fame

Joe Torre

Joe Torre is now standing in the Hall of Fame.

The Baseball Hall of Fame announced that Joe Torre was a unanimous selection of the Expansion era committee, joining Bobby Cox and Tony LaRussa who were also unanimous selections.

The Expansion Era featured players whose contributions were from 1973 to the present. A 16-person panel of writers, former baseball players, executives and historians voted, the nominees needing 75% of the vote to be inducted.

George Steinbrenner was on the ballot but he was not elected. Marvin Miller was once again on the ballot, but once again he wasn’t elected.

Torre led the New York Yankees to four World Series titles in 1996, 1998, 1999 and 2000. Torre has a career .538 winning percentage (2,326-1,997) as a manager and has had four 100-win seasons in 1998, 2002, 2003 and 2004.

  1. As great as Joe Torre was as a Yankees manager, his legacy, at least to me, has been tarnished somewhat by his constant attacks on Alex Rodriguez. I get that he didn't like A-Rod, but get over it dude. Every time he is asked about A-Rod, Torre can't help but needlessly hurl insults at him. Part of me can't help but feel that this witch hunt the MLB is conducting against A-Rod doesn't have something to do with Torre.

    I almost expect Torre to insult A-Rod in his HoF acceptance speech. Get over it already.

    The continued exclusion of Marvin Miller is an absolute travesty.

    Tony has got hundreds of thousands of FREE fans by just using
