Former A's manager Tony La Russa and onetime Giants owner Bob Lurie head an all-star cast of sports figures who will be inducted into the Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame.

The five-man class, which was announced Monday, will also include Sharks hockey great Owen Nolan, former De La Salle High football coach Bob Ladouceur and Olympics record-holder Jim Hines from McClymonds High School.

The 2014 class will be inducted on May 7 at a banquet at the Westin St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco.

La Russa, who managed the A's to three straight World Series from 1988-90 including a four-game sweep of Lurie's Giants in 1989, also is being inducted into baseball's Hall of Fame in Cooperstown in July. La Russa managed his teams into six World Series in all -- three each with the A's and St. Louis Cardinals -- and won three Fall Classics. He retired after his Cardinals beat the Texas Rangers in the 2011 World Series.

Lurie saved the Giants for San Francisco in 1976 when the team nearly was purchased by a group who wanted to move the franchise to Tampa Bay. He owned the Giants from 1979-93, during which time his team won two NL West titles and broke a 26-year World Series drought. He sold the Giants to a group of Bay Area investors headed by Peter Magowan in 1993.

Nolan played for the Sharks for eight seasons. He was a five-time all-star and was San Jose's team captain from 1998-2003. He was part of Canada's gold medal winning team in the 2002 Olympics.

Ladouceur set a national record when he led De La Salle to 151 consecutive victories from 1992-2003. He compiled a 399-25-3 record before stepping down as the head coach at the end of the 2012 season.

Hines, a 1964 graduate of McClymonds, became the first person to break the 10-second barrier in the 100 meters with a time of 9.9 seconds. He set a new record for the 100 in the 1968 Summer Olympics with a time of 9.95 seconds that stood until 1983.
