Yankee Stadium Legacy: #78 Joe Torre

After managing the Mets, Braves, and Cardinals earlier in his career Joe Torre gained his greatest achievements with the New York Yankees. Torre managed the Yankees from 1996-2007 after starting his tenure by being a last choice by George Steinbrenner, his greatest "mistake" he ever made. Torre won 1,173 games in New York good for a .605 winning percentage and reached the playoffs in each of his twelve seasons with the Yankees. Torre also won six American League pennants and four World Series title sitting on the bench for the Yankees.
