An estimated crowd of 48,000 fans were attendance at the ceremony, which featured the largest number of living inductees since 1976. Cox managed Glavine and Maddux for much of their careers with the Atlanta Braves. Thomas spent the majority of his career as the hulking face of the Chicago White Sox. Torre won four World Series titles with the New York Yankees, while La Russa won two championships with the St. Louis Cardinals and one with the Oakland Athletics. USA Today Sports photo
