Yankees To Retire Joe Torre’s Number


The Yankees said Thursday they will retire the No. 6 of Hall of Famer Joe Torre, who managed the team to four World Series championships in a five-year run that began in 1996.

With Derek Jeter expected to be the last player to wear No. 2 for the Yankees, the team will not have another player or manager don a number from 1 through 10. Jeter, the Yankees’ captain since 2003, said in February this is his final season.
