Joe Torre’s uniform No. 6 will become the 17th number to be retired by the Yankees in a ceremony to be held on Aug. 23 at Yankee Stadium.
Torre, who is to be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in July, will be the third manager to see his number retired. Casey Stengel, who led the Yankees to seven World Series titles, was the first, and Billy Martin was the second. Torre’s teams won four World Series championships and six American League pennants during his 12 seasons as manager from 1996-2007.
Plaques honoring former players Goose Gossage, Paul O’Neill and Tino Martinez will be placed in Monument Park on three separate dates this summer, the Yankees announced on Thursday.
Martinez and Gossage will be celebrated during Old-Timers’ Day weekend on June 21 and June 22, respectively. A ceremony for O’Neill will take place on Aug. 9.
So next year Brett Gardner will have the lowest number on the roster.
