Gillick Voted Into Baseball Hall; Steinbrenner, Miller Rejected

Dec. 6 (Bloomberg) -- Pat Gillick, a baseball executive who helped build three World Series champions, was voted into the sport’s Hall of Fame by the veterans committee. Former New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner fell short.

Gillick, 73, received 13 votes from the 16-member panel, one more than needed for induction. Marvin Miller, who led the baseball players’ union through the transition to free agency in the 1970s and ‘80s, was one vote shy, with 11. Gillick won two World Series with the Toronto Blue Jays and one with the Philadelphia Phillies.

Dave Concepcion, an infielder on World Series championship teams with the Cincinnati Reds of the 1970s, was third with eight votes.

Among those receiving an unspecified fewer than eight votes, according to the hall’s website, were Steinbrenner, who died in July, and the man he hired and fired five times as manager, Billy Martin.
