Taking place in Cooperstown, NY, six baseball players/managers will be inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame. The official induction ceremony will take place Sunday, July 27th.
Joe Torre, Tony La Russa and Bobby Cox, baseball’s winningest managers over the past four decades, were unanimously elected to the Hall of Fame on Monday by the expansion era committee.
Not only do many of us see the Dodgers as a five borough endeavor, an extension of our blue-collar grit and white-collar elitism, but we now must watch our enemy rocket to the top with a Yankee icon at the helm.
Joe Torre, a four-time World Series winning manager with the New York Yankees and the 1971 National League MVP, joined “The Mike Wise Show” on Wednesday and said Washington Nationals starting pitcher Stephen Strasburg is “something that comes along once in a generation.” Torre, a nine-time all-star with the Braves and Cardinals, managed the Los Angeles Dodgers from 2008-2010, and compares Strasburg to a player he coached, 2011 NL Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw.
