LAKE BUENA VISTA (CBSMiami/AP) — Collectively Joe Torre, Tony La Russa and Bobby Cox have won more than 6,000 games as managers and now all three are headed to the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Torre, La Russa and Cox were unanimously elected to the baseball Hall of Fame by the expansion era committee Monday

Each of the inductees won more than 2,000 games in managerial careers that spanned more than four decades. Torre became the fifth manager to win at least four World Series titles. La Russa won championships with Oakland and St. Louis. Cox led Atlanta to one championship and 14 straight division titles.

The announcement was made Monday at the winter meetings. They will be inducted July 27 in Cooperstown, N.Y., along with any players chosen by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine, 300-game winners, are among the newcomers to the writers’ ballot, with results announced Jan. 8.
