The Yankees will retire former manager Joe Torre's uniform No. 6 during a ceremony on August 23, the team announced.
   Torre was unanimously elected into the Hall of Fame by the Expansion Era Committee over the winter.
   Torre spent 12 years (1996-2007) as manager of the Yankees, presiding over their most recent dynasty in the late 1990s and early 2000s.
   The team went 1,173-767 (.605) under his watch, winning 10 division titles, six AL pennants and four World Series.
   With No. 6 being retired and Derek Jeter's No. 2 sure to be retired in the future, the Yankees are out of single digit numbers.
