Padres CEO Erik Greupner announced the newest inductees into the Padres Hall of Fame on Friday, including former team President and CEO Larry Lucchino and former broadcaster Ted Leitner. The inductions will take place as part of a Home Plate ceremony on Thursday, July 7, prior to the Padres vs. San Francisco Giants game at 6:40 p.m., with Lucchino and Leitner serving as the 16th and 17th members to be inducted into the Padres Hall of Fame, respectively.

Lucchino served as the club’s president and CEO from 1995 to 2001. He played an integral role in building the Padres teams that went on to win two National League West titles (1996, 1998) and the 1998 National League pennant, first by hiring fellow Padres Hall of Famer Kevin Towers as General Manager, and then by working closely with Towers and Manager Bruce Bochy to construct championship-caliber teams.
