The New York Yankees will retire Joe Torre's No. 6 uniform on Aug. 23. Torre's number will be the 17th the franchise has retired since its inception.

The New York Yankees are retiring Joe Torre's No. 6 uniform. 

According to MLB.com's Spencer Fordin, the ceremony will take place on Aug. 23 at Yankee Stadium

"Joe Torre's uniform No. 6 will become the 17th number to be retired by the Yankees in a ceremony to be held on Aug. 23 at Yankee Stadium. 

"Torre, who is inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in July, will be the third manager to see his number retired. Casey Stengel, who led the Yankees to seven World Series titles, was the first, and Billy Martin was the second. 

"Torre's teams won four World Series championships and six American League pennants during his 12 seasons as manager from 1996-2007."

Torre said in a statement (courtesy of ESPN New York's Andrew Marchand) on May 8 he hopes No. 6 will reflect the Yankees' glory during his days as their manager. 

"I am incredibly humbled. The Hall of Fame became possible for me because of what our players accomplished in 12 memorable years representing this historic franchise together. I hope that No. 6 will stand for everything that our players achieved." 

Marchand also lists the other Yankees whose uniforms were retired by the team:

"His number will join those of Marin (1), Babe Ruth (3), Lou Gehrig (4), Joe DiMaggio (5), Mickey Mantle (7), Berra and Dickey (8), Roger Maris (9), Phil Rizzuto (10), Thurman Munson (15), Whitey Ford (16), Don Mattingly (23), Elston Howard (32), Stengel (37), Mariano Rivera (42), Reggie Jackson (44) and Ron Guidry (49)." 

In addition to retiring Torre's No. 6, the Yankees are also honoring former players Goose Gossage, Tino Martinez and Paul O'Neill, whose plaques will be unveiled and placed at Monument Park, per Fordin. 

Martinez's and Gossage's ceremonies will be during Old-Timers' Day weekend on June 21 and 22, respectively. As for O'Neill, it will be on Aug. 9. 

Gossage, a member of the Yankees' 1978 World Series champions roster, told Christian Red of The New York Daily News it is "totally awesome" to be honored by the team.

"Totally awesome. Oh my God, I can't even relate. Just the company that you keep out there and how many great players played with the Yankees, and just to be a part of the Yankee organization was unbelievable.

"My mom and dad, my whole family, were huge Yankee fans growing up out here in Colorado. This is just icing on the cake with a cherry on top." 

O'Neill, who has a total of five World Series rings and is currently a Yankees analyst, told Red it is a great honor.

"It means a lot, no doubt about it. Leaving Cincinnati, I pretty much consider myself a New York Yankee and loved the city and loved the way the people treated me."

Torre, a nine-time All-Star and 1971 National League MVP, enjoyed a 24-year stint as a major-league manager with the New York Mets, Atlanta Braves, St. Louis Cardinals, Yankees and Los Angeles Dodgers. 

He won a total of four World Series titles with the Yankees (1996, 1998-2000) -- a number which ties him fourth all-time with Walter Alston and behind Joe McCarthy (seven), Casey Stengel (seven)  and Connie Mack (five), according to his bio on the official Baseball Hall of Fame website.

 

Torre was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame along with Tony La Russa and Bobby Cox last December. The three will be officially inducted on July 27.   

Torre is currently MLB's executive vice president of baseball operations.
