Former Phillies GM Pat Gillick elected to Hall of Fame

One of the key architects of the 2008 Phillies team has been given the highest honor in baseball: Former Phillies GM Pat Gillick has been elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame by the Veterans Committee.

While Gillick is best known in Philadelphia for helping construct a Champion in 2008, he also won two other titles when he was the GM for the Blue Jays and built a Mariners team that won 116 games in 2001. Bottom line, in his 30 year career as general manager of the Jays, Orioles, Mariners and Phillies, Gillick built winners. Gillick still currently works for the Phillies as an advisor.
