Former Mud Hens manager Larry Parrish has been elected to the International League's Hall of Fame, the league announced today.

The winningest manager in Toledo professional baseball history with 569 victories, Parrish served as the Mud Hens manager for a record eight seasons, highlighted by back-to-back Governors' Cup championships in 2005 and 2006. Parrish ranks fifth among all-time Toledo managers in winning percentage (.508) with his career record of 569-551.

Parrish departed Toledo in 2011 to become hitting coach for the Atlanta Braves, but he rejoined the Detroit organization and next season he will manage the Hi-A West Michigan Whitecaps.

The two other members of the IL's Class of 2013 are outfielder Mack Jones and third baseman Don Richmond, both of whom will be inducted posthumously.
