The entire family came into the home during the World Series. Your home. My home. Everybody's home. One day Joe Torre was just another name out there on the broad sports landscape. Used to be a catcher, right? Used to manage the St. Louis Cardinals, right? Now, as the manager of the New York Yankees, he was sitting at the dinner table every night.
You're 56 years old, and you have a little baby, Joe?
"No problem. I have to get up three times a night to go to the bathroom. The baby and I are on the same schedule."
And you have a brother, Frank, who needs a heart transplant?
"Needs it badly, I'm afraid."
And your older brother, Rocco, died?
And your oldest sister is a nun?
"Right here in New York City. Sister Marguerite. Principal of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary elementary school in Queens."
And you've never won a World Series?
