Joe Torre

On this date in 1971, Joe Torre is named the NL MVP after hitting .363 with 24 home runs and 137 rbis.

"Winning the MVP was one of the worst things to happen to me. I was trying to live up to what I had done the previous year. I expected to much of myself. I believe that nobody put pressure on you but yourself and that is what I did."
