Cox also talked about the uniqueness of this year’s class. He’ll be inducted with two pitchers who played for him and won 300 games, along with managerial rivals Torre and La Russa.
“I don’t think it will ever happen again, with a manager being able to go in with two of the greatest pitchers in the history of baseball and then going in with two fellow managers at the same time,” he said. “I don’t think that’s ever, ever going to happen again.”
