It’s a big Hall of Fame class in Cooperstown this month.

How big is it?

Well, six new members will be inducted July 27 in Cooperstown, N.Y.

Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas were elected by voting members of the Baseball Writers of America in January.

Managers Bobby Cox, Tony La Russa and Joe Torre were selected the month before by a 16-man, golden era committee of the veteran’s committee.

So, that’s six living, breathing Hall of Famers who will take to the stage a year after three deceased newcomers — Deacon White, Hank O’Day, and Jacob Ruppert — were elected by the pre-integration committee.
