With four championships on his resume, Joe Torre has already guaranteed his spot in New York Yankees history. One more win allows to join an exclusive few.
Torre looks to become the fourth Yankees manager with 1,000 wins when New York faces the Texas Rangers in the finale of a three-game series at Ameriquest Field.
Torre is in his 11th season with New York, the longest uninterrupted tenure by one Yankees manager since Casey Stengel lasted between 1949 and 1960.
The 65-year-old Torre also has won 74 games in 10 consecutive postseason appearances with New York, taking the team to six World Series appearances.
With a win, Torre would join Joe McCarthy (1,460), Stengel (1,149) and Miller Huggins (1,067) as the only Yankees managers with 1,000 wins.
