Towers to be posthumously inducted into Padres Hall of Fame

SAN DIEGO (AP) The San Diego Padres will posthumously induct Kevin Towers into their Hall of Fame on May 12 as part of a celebration of the 20th anniversary of their 1998 National League championship team.

Towers, who spent 14 seasons as San Diego's general manager, died Jan. 30 of complications from cancer. He was 56.

The Padres won the NL West four times under Towers, reaching the World Series in 1998 before being swept by the New York Yankees.

"Kevin was the perfect embodiment of what it means to be a Padre and his legacy will continue to live on at Petco Park," Padres owners Ron Fowler and Peter Seidler said in a statement.
