Baseball Exec. Pat Gillick Elected to Hall of Fame

From the Hall of Fame press release...

Gillick becomes the 32nd executive to be elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame and just the fourth individual elected whose career has been defined nearly exclusively as a team architect, joining Ed Barrow, Branch Rickey and George Weiss in Cooperstown. Gillick will be joined by any electees who emerge from the Baseball Writers' Association of America voting, which will be announced on January 5, 2011.

This is somewhat monumental for me - and for any other Blue Jays fan - as it means that there will be another Toronto connection in the Hall of Fame.  Gillick was the GM and mastermind behind assembling Toronto's only World Series wins - back to back in 1992-93.

Add another name to the list!
