Another special baseball event: legendary manager Joe Torre’s Jersey No. 6 is being retired by the New York Yankees [1] tomorrow August 23rd, a rare honor from the most successful franchise in MLB’s history [2].  Bigelow Tea [3] is excited for Joe, who has been on the family-run company’s All-Star Tea Team [4] for years as a great friend and an enthusiastic Decaffeinated Green Tea [5] lover!

Retiring Joe’s number is a testament to him and the championship Yankee teams he coached. “I am incredibly humbled,” Joe said in a statement [6]. “Because of what our players accomplished … No. 6 will stand for everything our players achieved.” Joe joins other Yankee greats [7] like Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio, Mantle and Jackson. Talk about a Field of Dreams!

Tea drinkers appreciate Joe’s love for Bigelow Tea’s Green Tea [8] from years back when he was diagnosed with cancer. His Bigelow Tea was always on the Yankees bench. Bigelow Tea Facebook fan Penny Zeiter Shamy [9] recently shared her “Joe story” of trying for ages to get her husband to drink Bigelow Tea’s Green Tea. He wouldn’t … until he saw that Joe Torre recommended it. “Thank you Bigelow Tea!”  And Joe himself said [10], “when I found out how good green tea was for me, Bigelow was easy to love!”

Bigelow Tea recently congratulated Joe when he was welcomed into the hallowed halls of Cooperstown [11]. Well, go ahead and raise another mug of tea today to commemorate the Yankees retiring Jersey No.6! As his plaque at Cooperstown reads [12]: Joe Torre is a “Beacon of serenity and stature in the Dugout.” Maybe it was all that green tea!
