Torre Enshrined in Cooperstown

 

After four World Series titles with the New York Yankees, Brooklyn native Joe Torre solidified his place in baseball history with his induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame on Sunday afternoon in Cooperstown.

Torre, who had originally planned to speak for only 10 minutes, stretched it out into a 28-minute trip down memory lane. Along the way Torre reminisced on his six pennants and four world series titles (all with the Yanks). Torre would go on to mention the next time he will be at the Hall of Fame is when Mariano Rivera and Derek Jeter get inducted.

People also forget what a great player Torre was. He played 18 seasons in the majors with the Milwaukee Braves, Cardinals, and Mets. He was a lifetime .297 hitter and hit .363 in the 1971 season.
