Joe Torre is now standing in the Hall of Fame.
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.
