Torre spent 12 years (1996-2007) as manager of the Yankees, watching over their most recent dynasty in the late 1990s and early 2000s. The team went 1,173-767 (.605) under his watch, winning 10 division titles, six AL pennants and four World Series.

The Yankees also honored former players Goose Gossage, Tino Martinez and Paul O'Neill with plaques in Monument Park this summer. Bernie Williams will be honored next season, according to the team.
