Joe Torre Biography
Cancer survivor and Former MLB Player and manager Joe Torre was born on July 18, 1940 in Brooklyn, NY. Since his retirement, Joe Torre has co-author of four books: The Yankee Years, Joe Torres Ground Rules for Winners, Chasing the Dream: My Lifelong Journey to the World Series, and Pitching and Hitting.
During his MLB Career he was a nine-time All-Star, playing a catcher, first baseman and a third baseman for the Milwaukee/Atlanta Braves, New York Mets, and the ++St. Louis Cardinals++. After his retirement as a player, he later managed all three teams.
He briefly served as a player-manager for the Mets in 1977. Torre's most successful stint as a manager came with the Yankees, whom he led from 1996 to 2007. The Yankees reached the postseason each year and won ten American League East division titles, six American League pennants, four World Series titles, and compiled a .605 winning percentage overall. With 2,326 wins, he is fifth all-time in MLB history for wins as a manager.
On November 1, 2007, the Los Angeles Dodgers announced that Torre would be their manager beginning with the 2008 season, filling the void left when Grady Little resigned his post two days before. This marked the return of Torre to the National League, the only league he had played or managed in prior to becoming the Yankees skipper.
After retiring as a manager from the Dodgers, Torre took on a new role for Major League Baseball to work with former Commissioner Bud Selig as the Executive Vice President of Baseball Operations. He also went on to develop The Joe Torre Safe At Home Foundation.
