Joe Torre announced on Friday that he will be retiring as the Los Angeles Dodgers' manager at the end of the season and will be replaced by Don Mattingly.
According to ESPN.com, Torre said Friday he will retire at the end of the season, although the 70-year-old couldn't say with certainty that he'll never manage again. "Baseball has been my life, and hopefully will continue to be my life in some capacity," Torre said. "When I came out here, it was just to find out if managing can be fun again, and it's been fun. … But you have to make some decisions by instinct, and my instinct tells me it's time to go."
So what will Torre do now? According to ESPN, there are rumors he might accept a different job with the Dodgers, he'll return to the broadcasting booth or even look into owning a team. Will he miss his role as manager though?
"Am I going to miss it? Sure, I'm going to miss it," Torre said. "I just felt this ballclub needed a different voice, a younger voice, and there's nobody I feel more secure about turning it over to than Donnie."
Are you sad to see Torre retire?
