Torre, La Russa, Cox considered for Hall of Fame

Mon., Dec. 9, 2013

The baseball winter meetings in Florida are starting with a look back. Joe Torre, Tony La Russa and Bobby Cox were among the candidates considered Sunday by the Hall of Fame’s expansion era committee. The trio of retired managers was joined on the 12-man ballot by a pair of much-debated figures who died in recent years: New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner and pioneering players’ union head Marvin Miller. Among the nine managers with three or more World Series titles, Torre (pictured) and La Russa are the only ones not in Cooperstown. The vote announcement is scheduled for this morning at the meetings site near Orlando. Torre and Cox retired as managers after the 2010 season and La Russa after leading St. Louis to the 2011 championship. – AP
