Though many younger baseball fans associate Joe Torre strictly with his success as Yankees manager, the current Dodgers skipper spent 18 seasons as a player for four teams. He was a nine-time all star, a Gold Glove winner and the 1971 NL MVP. Before taking over as the Yankees skipper in 1996, Torre managed the Mets (1977-81), the Braves (1982-84) and the Cardinals (1990-95). In 12 seasons in the Bronx, Torre compiled a 1,173-767 record with four World Series titles.
