STATEMENT BY MAYOR MICHAEL R. BLOOMBERG ON END OF JOE TORRE ERA
"Joe Torre is a great New Yorker who brought historic leadership and excitement - and incredible success - to the Bronx for the past twelve seasons. While I am sorry to see him go as the Yankees' skipper, all great things must come to an end. I know that Joe will continue to make New Yorkers' lives better through his foundation and charity work that, for so many, has been just as important as his legendary accomplishments in pinstripes."
