Torre features a 1,000-645 record with ny , before him we discover Joe McCarthy (1,460), Stengel (1,149) and Miller Huggins (1,067). Torre has the longest uninterrupted term among Yankees managers since Stengel from 1949-60. Yankees owner George Steinbrenner and every one Yankee fans should be pleased with him for the choices he’s making are the proper moves and he’s a real leader to he team.

Torre’s road to thousand Yankees victories has been glorious sometimes , with six pennants and 4 World Series titles. Well 1,000 victories are tons of wins, especially once you sign a two-year contract back in ’96 and believe what’s happened since then. the yank history book may be a special place to be for Joe Torre and really well deserved one.
