Torre to wear a Yankee cap into the Hall

The Baseball Hall of Fame issued a statement earlier today with the cap selection of each inductee. Joe Torre is going in as a Yankee, Bobby Cox – a Brave; Tom Glavine – also a Brave; Tony La Russa – no logo; Greg Maddux – no logo and Frank Thomas is going in as a White Sock.

Here’s Torre’s statement:

“I was lucky that my career took me only to great baseball towns. Every place where I played or managed is special to me because of the memories and the friendships that each afforded me. When I became the manager of the New York Yankees, it was an opportunity to realize my lifelong dream of winning the World Series. We were fortunate enough to succeed in our first season in 1996, and in the years that followed, we wrote some great new chapters in Yankee history. I am honored that I will wear the Yankee logo on my cap in Cooperstown to represent what our teams achieved together.”

The Hall of Fame induction ceremony will be held on July 27th in Cooperstown.
