(KPLR) – Tony La Russa has been voted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Baseball’s winter meetings started Monday in Orlando, Florida, and the former Cardinals manager was among those voted into the Baseball Hall of Fame by the Expansion ERA Committee.

Mangers Joe Torre and Bobby Cox were also voted in unanimously. La Russa is third in all-time wins by a manager.

La Russa was with the Cardinals from 1996 until he retired in 2011 after the Cardinals won the World Series. Before that, La Russa managed the Okland A’s and the Chicago White Sox.

They will all be inducted into the Hall of Fame on July 27, 2014 in Cooperstown.
