Former Phillies GM Pat Gillick, who guided the organization to their first World Series title in nearly 30 years, was elected to the Major League Baseball Hall Of Fame today. The hall had this to say.â†µ
Pat Gillick spent 27 years as the general manager for the Blue Jays, Orioles, Mariners and Phillies, winning at every stop along the way, with his teams earning 11 post-season berths and three World Series championships. In his 27 years as GM, his teams finished with a winning record 20 times.â†µ
Gillick was elected by the 16 member expansion era committee. Congrats to Pat! Hopefully he’s just the first Phillie from the World Series teams to make the hall.
