Comparing Coaches Joe Torre & Billy Martin
The New York Yankees have had many coaches in its baseball history and a few of them will never be forgotten. Yankees coach, Joe Torre, coaching 1996 to present, and Billy Martin coached for 3 different periods totaling 8 years, have both won The World Series while going through many ups and downs to accomplish their dreams.

Joe was proud of his brother that he would go back to his friends bragging about how is brother was a World Series Champion and had the ring to prove it. Frank would always tease Joe by saying ?I have two World Series rings. Where?s yours? Joe could never say anything to that until his dream came true in 1996, thirty-nine years later.
As a major league player Torre went from being an MVP player to a part-time player through out the years of 1960-1977. In 1975, playing for the Mets, Torre knew
