This is a 1997 made for TV movie about baseball manager Joe Torre. The movie was filmed in Toronto and New York. It stars Paul Sorvino as Torre. Joe Torre spent years as a player and a manager without ever winning a World Series title. In 1996, in his first year as manager of the Yankees, he wins his first of four world championships. The movie tells of the many issues Torre had to deal with both on and off the field. On the field, few people gave the Yankees any hope of winning a world championship in 1996. Off the field, Torre had to deal with the death of his brother and his other brother's need for a heart transplant. The movie is a story of Torre's triumph over adversity.
