PBR - Pat Gillick, the mastermind behind the Phillies 2008 World Championship season, was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame on Monday by the Expansion Era committee.
Gillick was the senior vice president and general manager of the Phillies from 2006-08, and built the club into back-to-back NL East Champions (2007-08).
Gillick currently works as a senior advisor to the president/general manager within the organization, a position he has held since November of 2008.
The 2011 season will mark Gillick's 54th in professional baseball.
Gillick had won a pair of World Series titles with Toronto prior to joining Philadelphia.
"Pat Gillick's contributions to baseball are stored in the memories of fans in Toronto, Baltimore, Seattle and Philadelphia," commissioner Bud Selig said in a statement.
