Former Orioles third baseman Jeff Manto will be inducted into the International League Hall of Fame this year, the league announced Tuesday.
The Orioles hired the 49-year-old Manto as the organization's minor league hitting coordinator in November.
Manto batted .256 with 17 home runs and 38 RBIs in 89 games for the Orioles in 1995, his only season with the team. He hit .275 with 125 home runs with seven different International League teams between 1992 and 2000. He was the League's Most Valuable Player in 1994.
In addition to Manto, current Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders manager Dave Miley and current Toledo Mud Hens broadcaster Jim Weber will also be inducted into the league's Hall of Fame this year.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
