Joe Torre's #6 Will Be Retired Eventually

Brian Cashman was asked at the Winter Meetings if the Yankees plan to retire the #6 of Joe Torre and Cashman confirmed that it would happen eventually. Torre was unanimously elected into the Hall of Fame and seems to be on the short list to replace Bud Selig as the Commissioner of Baseball when he retires at seasons end. Torre spent 12 season on the Yankees bench as the manager including 11 post season runs, four World Series titles in six trips, and over 1000 wins including the 1998 114-win team. If anyone deserves it it's definitely Torre.

Here is the quote when asked about retiring the number:

“We haven’t given it out for a reason,” said the GM. “It’s been tucked away for quite some time. At some point, that’ll happen, not doubt about it. Clearly it has already unofficially happened.”
