NEW YORK (AP) -

The New York Yankees have retired four-time World Series champion manager Joe Torre's No. 6.

Torre unveiled his number alongside those of 16 other retired numbers in Monument Park on Saturday at the start of a ceremony honoring the recently inducted Hall of Famer. The Yankees later revealed a plaque to be placed in the area beyond the center field wall.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio issued a proclamation read during the ceremony that declared it Joe Torre Day.

Torre took over as manager of the Yankees in 1996 and led them to their first World Series title since 1978. With a sense of calm and familial congeniality, Torre led New York to 12 straight playoff appearances during his tenure under combative owner George Steinbrenner, including three more championships from 1998-2000.

He was 1,173-767-2 in the regular season with the Yankees and was inducted into baseball's Hall of Fame this July.
