Joe Torre Thirty-six years is a long time to wait for a ring. For Joe Torre, that wait was worth every minute. From his rookie year as a beefy 20-year-old backstop to his first taste of postseason glory with the New York Yankees, Joe experienced all the highs and lows the national pastime has to offer. An All-Star, MVP and batting champion, he ranked among the most productive players of his era. As a fledgling manager, he tasted frustration and ridicule tempered only by occasional success.
