Torre Added To Milwaukee Honor Roll

MILWAUKEE, WI (LEARFIELD-WSAU) For all the success he's had as a manager, Joe Torre says he'll never forget the first big league team he played for, the Milwaukee Braves.  Torre was inducted yesterday into the Braves' Honor Roll at Miller Park.

 He played nine years for the Braves, after he was first called up by the former Class-"C" Eau Claire Braves late in 1960.  Torre said he has never forgotten his first Major League hit -- a pinch-hit single against Harvey Haddix of Pittsburgh at the old County Stadium.  It triggered a rally which tied the game -- and he remembered his legs shaking so badly, that Lee Maye had to come out to run for him.  

Torre was a nine-time All-Star in 18 seasons as a player, before making his biggest mark as a big league manager.  He won four World Series with the Yankees, and New York plans to retire his Number-Six on August 23rd.  Torre is also going into the Hall-of-Fame this year as a skipper.
