Sparky Anderson Elected to Hall
Feb. 29, 2000
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) _ Sparky Anderson, the only manager to win World Series titles in both leagues, was elected today to the Hall of Fame.
The Veterans Committee, however, failed to elect anyone in the former major league player category. Bill Mazeroski, Mel Harder and Gil Hodges all had been candidates.
Negro leagues star Turkey Stearns and 19th century second baseman Bid McPhee also were selected by the 14-man panel.
