Happy Birthday to 1970 Cardinals teammate and horse racing junkie… Joseph Paul Torre.
Best remembered as the manager of the 1996-2007 New York Yankees. Joe guided the Bronx Bombers to the playoffs for 12 straight seasons, winning four World Series rings.
He was also one heck of a ballplayer. During his 17-year playing career, he played for the Milwaukee & Atanta Braves, St. Louis Cardinals and finished as a player/manager for the 1977 New York Mets. Torre compiled a lifetime .297 batting average, collected 2,342 hits, 252 home runs and 1,185 RBIs. He hit over .300 five time and was a nine-time All-Star. His best season was 1971, when he was the National League Most Valuable Player, batting .363 with 230 hits, 24 home runs and a league-leading 137 RBIs.
