COOPERSTOWN, N. Weston McKennie Jersey .Y. -- Greg Maddux and Tony La Russa will not have logos on their Hall of Fame plaques. The decision was announced Thursday by the Hall, which said Joe Torres plaque will have the logo of the New York Yankees. Plaques for Tom Glavine and Bobby Cox will have Atlanta Braves logos, and Frank Thomas will have the logo of the Chicago White Sox. The six will be inducted during ceremonies on July 27. The managers were elected last month by the Halls expansion-era committee and the players were chosen this month by the Baseball Writers Association of America. Of the 300 previous Hall members, 86 have caps with logos and 42 dont have caps. Maddux began his big league career with the Chicago Cubs from 1986-92, winning the first of his four Cy Young Awards in his final season at Wrigley Field. He was with the Braves from 1993-03, winning Cy Youngs in his first three seasons in Atlanta, then returned to the Cubs from 2004-06. He also played for the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres from 2006-08. "I feel good about it, I spent half my career in Chicago and half of my career in Atlanta," Maddux said during a news conference in Arlington, Texas. "I love both places. Obviously, I feel like I had more success as a Brave. We did get a World Series there, but I kind of came up a Cub. For me, I couldnt pick. I really couldnt. ... So Im going to go in neutral, I guess." Hall President Jeff Idelson said a logo makes sense for those "whose most compelling contributions clearly took place with one team" and not having a team logo is "equally acceptable" for those whose careers were built significantly among multiple teams. "Regardless of the selection, a Hall of Famer belong to every team for which he played or managed, as well as every fan who followed his career," Idelson said. La Russa managed the Chicago White Sox (1979-86), Oakland (1986-95) and St. Louis (1996-11), winning World Series titles in 1989, 2006 and 2011. "The Chicago White Sox gave me my start in the game as a big league manager for my first eight seasons in my 33-year managerial career," La Russa said. "In Oakland, we recorded four first-place finishes in 10 years, winning three pennants and a World Series. And in St. Louis, our clubs won three pennants and two titles in 16 years. Its the totality of the success of each of those three teams that led me to Cooperstown, so I am choosing to not feature a logo so that fans of all clubs can celebrate this honour with me." Torre managed the Yankees from 1996-07, winning Series titles in 1996 and from 1998-00. He also managed the New York Mets (1997-81), Atlanta (1982-84), St. Louis (1990-95) and the Dodgers (2008-10). "When I became the manager of the New York Yankees, it was an opportunity to realize my lifelong dream of winning the World Series," Torre said. "We were fortunate enough to succeed in our first season in 1996, and in the years that followed, we wrote some great new chapters in Yankee history." Decisions were relatively simple for the others. Glavine pitched for the Braves from 1987-02 and in 2008, spending 2003-07 with the Mets. Choosing the Braves was easy for Glavine, who said he knew it had to be a tough decision for Maddux because of his time with the Cubs. Still, Glavine is surprised about Maddux choosing no logo. "It still was a lot of fun for me to be his teammate," Glavine said before the annual dinner of the Boston chapter of the BBWAA. Cox managed the Braves from 1978-81, managed Toronto from 1982-85, then returned to Atlanta as general manager. He became the Braves manager again in 1990 and stayed through 2010, leading Atlanta to 14 straight division titles and a World Series championship in 1995. Thomas was with the White Sox from 1990-05, then split 2006-08 between Oakland and Toronto. USA Soccer Gear . "Well over 50 (per cent)," coach Claude Noel said Tuesday after practice, where the Jets were looking at ways to cut down the scoring chances theyve been giving away. USA Soccer Jerseys China . Vargas (8-3) allowed four singles and two walks while striking out five, allowing only two runners from a diluted Twins lineup to reach second base. Mike Moustakas and Jarrod Dyson hit RBI singles in the second inning against Kevin Correia (4-10), and that was all Vargas needed. https://www.cheapusasoccer.com/ . -- Jake Paterson made 39 saves as the Saginaw Spirit halted the Guelph Storms seven-game win streak with a 6-3 victory on Sunday in Ontario Hockey League action.TURIN, Italy -- Roberto Mancini guided Galatasaray to a 2-2 draw at Juventus in the Champions League on Wednesday, just two days after taking over as coach at the Turkish club. Substitute Fabio Quagliarella thought he had won it for Juventus with an 87th-minute header but Umut Bulut immediately equalized. A blunder from Juve defender Leonardo Bonucci had gifted Didier Drogba the opener for Galatasaray in the 36th minute before Arturo Vidal levelled from the penalty spot after Quagliarella was adjudged to have been fouled by Nordin Amrabat. "Im disappointed," Juventus coach Antonio Conte said. "But the most bitterness and regret comes from the second goal, because giving away a goal straight from the restart after we scored in the 87th is something quite unusual and strange. We drew a game which we really deserved to win." Conte described it as an "awful result." "We need to really, really fight. It will be a lot harder than last year, a lot, lot harder," he said. "A hard path became so much harder because of two defensive mistakes. We shouldnt despair, we have four games left, we have to grit our teeth. If were good well get through." Next up for Juventus is a double header against Real Madrid, which beat Galatasaray 6-1 in its opening match and won 4-0 at home to FC Cophenhagen on Wednesday to take firm control of Group B. "I dont think Real Madrid will beat Juventus twice," Mancini said. "Ive seen them twice recently and dont think theyre in form really. Well try to do very well against Copenhagen but we need to improve on tonight and play better. I think the group is still very open." Former Inter Milan and Manchester City coach Mancini was confirmed as Fatih Terims replacement at Galatasaray on Monday and only met the squad shortly before their flight to Italy. "The only advantage I had was that of knowing Juventus," Mancini said. "I didnt know my players so had to get to know them quickly, had to learn their names quickly. I would definitely have signed for a draw before the match, even though I always think you should go for a win. "We were unlucky with the penalty, I dont think it was a penalty. We defended well and its not easy to defend against a team like Juventus, then the game changed with the penalty." Both teams had endured a disappointing start to their European campaigns and they started cautiously in Turinn. Custom USA Soccer Jerseys. Juventus had the first real opportunity in the 15th minute, but Paul Pogba slipped as he attempted an audacious overhead kick and missed the ball completely. That seemed to spark the game into life and Drogba almost put Galatasaray in front four minutes later with a shot from a tight angle which Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon cleared with his foot. A setback followed shortly afterward for Juventus when Mirko Vucinic beat the offside trap to race onto a delightful chipped pass by Andrea Pirlo, but stumbled and injured himself in the process. Vucinic was replaced minutes later by Quagliarella, while Galatasaray defender Semih Kaya made way for Gokhan Zan. Quagliarella had an opportunity with his first touch in the 28th minute as he prodded a cross narrowly past the left post. The Juventus forward was caught up in a tangle with Zan as he struck the ball but the referee rejected his furious claims for a penalty. Galatasaray broke the deadlock when Bonucci woefully misplaced a back pass, giving it straight to Drogba, who easily bypassed the outrushing Buffon to slot into an empty net. Juventus could have levelled quickly but Carlos Tevezs fierce shot scraped the outside of the right post moments later. And Galatasaray could have extended its lead when Wesley Sneijder was left completely unmarked and blazed well over the crossbar from just inside the area. Arturo Vidal went close as he twice fired narrowly over the crossbar in quick succession. Conte brought on Fernando Llorente for his Champions League debut and the Spaniard almost headed Juventus in front moments later but his effort also went just over the crossbar from close range. Juventus did level in the 77th minute when Quagliarella made the most of a mistimed challenge from fellow substitute Amrabat and Vidal blasted home the spot kick. Llorente had the ball in the back of the net in the 84th but it was ruled out as Tevez was offside in the buildup. Juventus had come from behind to win two of its previous three league games and it looked like doing so again when Quagliarella headed home Pirlos cross from close range four minutes from time. However, a Galatasaray counter attack led to an 88th-minute equalizer as Drogba took advantage of gaps in the Juventus defence to pick out an unmarked Bulut on the far side of goal. Llorente missed a chance for Juventus in stoppage time when he toe-poked the ball wide of the right post. ' ' '
