Torre to the Hall
On Monday morning, it became official that long-time New York Yankees manager Joe Torre had been unanimously elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame.
It’s a well deserving honor as Tony La Russa and Bobby Cox will join Torre in this summer’s class.
Not making it in this time around is the late George Steinbrenner.
Here’s reaction from some of the best MLB Media has to offer:
No one else on ballot got more than 6 of 16 hall of fame votes. 12 needed. That includes steinbrenner and marvin miller.

George Steinbrenner finishes a half-dozen votes short of HOF induction. I'd bet he wouldn't have been thrilled that Torre got in before him.

"Managing against them, you certainly learned things … I am honored to go into the Hall with these two guys." – Torre on Cox, La Russa.
