The New York Yankees Present Joe Torre Day

Today the New York Yankees present Joe Torre Day at Yankee Stadium before they host the Chicago White Sox in the Bronx. Joe Torre was the manager of the 90’s and most of the 2000’s Yankees squads that had so much success under then owner George Steinbrenner. Torre seemed to be the one that held it all together with his calm aura and patient approach to the game. Torre seemingly loved his players and his players loved him back and respected him more.

Today Mr. Torre will receive a plaque in Monument Park and a plethora of former and current Yankee greats should be in attendance. Tino Martinez Day was awesome, Paul O’Neill Day was cool, Goose Gossage Day was interesting, but Joe Torre Day should be a site to see. Over/under 10 words into his speech that he is crying like a baby? I’m going under.
