Joe Torre

The more you listen to Joe Torre talk, the more you see another element at work here: Let's call it history. Torre was born and raised in Brooklyn, although as a kid he rooted for the New York Giants. He understands the Dodgers as an institution, an organization with a reputation equivalent to the one he left, with a long line of fabled players such as Duke Snider and Jackie Robinson. "It's part of why I took the job," he said. "It's one of the storied franchises. I certainly remember growing up with Snider and Reese and Furillo and Campy and Jackie in 1947 and thereafter. Jackie--you probably hated him more than anybody because every time he was in a rundown play, nobody ever tagged him out."
