Wilpon: Torre’s accomplishments “speak for themselves”
Though Joe Torre will always be best-known for his work as the four-time World Series-winning Yankees manager, he will also be inextricably linked with the Mets. Torre ended his playing career with three seasons in Flushing from 1975-77, then began his managing career with five seasons from 1977-81.
Upon Torre’s election into the Baseball Hall of Fame on Monday, Mets principal owner Fred Wilpon offered the following statement:
“We are thrilled that Joe Torre has been elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame,” the statement read. “Joe has distinguished himself throughout his career both on and off the field. His records and accomplishments as a player and manager speak for themselves. All of us at the Mets salute and congratulate Joe.”
