The Irish-American Baseball Hall of Fame announced the inductees for 2012, and among them are former Red Sox manager Joe Morgan.
The other five to be enshrined on July 27 at Foley's NY Pub and Restaurant are former Yankees Gene Michael and Jeff Nelson, former Minnesota Twins manager Tom Kelly, sportswriter Jimmy Breslin, and MLB Hall of Fame outfielder Wee Willie Keeler.
Here's more from The New York Times.
This will be the fifth class to enter the Hall, and the six will join such immortals as John McGraw, Nolan Ryan, Connie Mack, Vin Scully, Paul O'Neill and Bill James.
Congrats to Walpole Joe, and the five other inductees!
