Joe Torre Resigns Post With MLB For Dodgers Ownership Bid

Major League Baseball executive vice-president of baseball operations, Joe Torre, has reportedly resigned from his position in order to pursue a part-ownership opportunity with the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Torre, 71, served as the manager of the Dodgers from 2008-10 where he posted a 259-229 record. Other well-known stars such as NBA legend Magic Johnson and former Washington Nationals president Stan Kasten are believed to be interested in acquiring the Dodgers as well.

The former manager served just one year as commissioner Bud Selig’s right-hand man in his position with the MLB, but he is best known for his long stint as the skipper of the New York Yankees. From 1996-2007 Torre won four World Series championships with the Yankees, and was named the Manager of the Year in 1996 and 1998.

Torre was also a nine-time All-Star as a player, and in 1971 won both the National League Most Valuable Player award and the batting title.
