Cooperstown Class of 2014: Rickwood Veterans

The 2014 class of inductees into the Baseball Hall of Fame included two Rickwood veterans, Tony LaRussa and Joe Torre.

LaRussa was a member of both the 1965 and 1967 Birmingham squads, while Joe Torre was the first-year manager for the Atlanta Braves in 1982 when they faced the Southern League All-stars at Rickwood Field.

This year’s class brings the number of Rickwood veterans in the Hall of Fame to 109 members.
