Joe Torre Headed Back to St. Louis!

According to Bill Shaikin, Joe Torre has been named to the National League’s All-Star coaching staff.  While this seemed like a no-brainer, it’s good to see.  It’s also a homecoming of sorts for Joe.  From Shaikin:

Torre played for the St. Louis Cardinals for six years and managed them for an additional five. He won the NL Most Valuable Player award as a Cardinal in 1971, when he hit .363 with 24 home runs and 137 runs batted in.

Hopefully Joe will be able to use his influence to get some of those well-deserving Dodgers players on the team!
