Joe Torre, Tony La Russa and Bobby CoxBaseball’s winningest managers over the past four decades took center stage on Monday as they were all unanimously elected to the Hall of Fame by the expansion era committee.

Joe Torre, Tony La Russa and Bobby Cox have  won more than 2,000 games and were selected on all 16 ballots when the committee met Sunday ahead of baseball’s winter meetings.

Torre became the fifth manager to win four World Series championships, leading the New York Yankees to titles in 1996 and from 1998 to 2000 — beating Cox’s Braves twice. After making only one trip to the playoffs in 14 seasons with the New York Mets, St. Louis and Atlanta, Torre guided the Yankees to the postseason in all 12 of his years in the Bronx with a cool, patient demeanor.

La Russa finished with the third most wins by a manager in a career that began with the Chicago White Sox in 1979 and ended with a record of 2,728-2,365.

Cox’s managerial career began in 1978 with Atlanta, but he was fired after four seasons — only one above .500. A four-year run with Toronto ended in 1985 with an AL East title, and Ted Turner lured him back to the Braves as the team’s GM. Cox returned to the dugout in 1990, and following one losing season he went on one of the most successful regular-season runs by any skipper, leading the Braves to 14 straight division titles and a World Series championship in 1995.

He retired in 2010 fourth behind La Russa in career wins with a record of 2,504-2,001. Cigar-chomping and fiercely loyal to his players, Cox was ejected a major league record 159 times.
