Life is Good

Bill Finley profiles Dodgers Owner Joe Torre, part owner of Homeboykris, in the NY Times. Majority owner Louis Lazzinnaro is the owner of Sergio's restaurant, just outside Saratoga in Wilton and Spolini in Kew Gardens, Queens.

Torre a 9 time all star as a player with 4 World Series Rings on his finger as a Manager has also proven to be a success in the Horse Racing world. This includes his cut of Vineyard Haven, which Finley reports at 2.4 million, when the partners sold him as a 2 year old.

Finley also writes:

Torre said he owned parts of “six or seven horses,”

At some point in reaching success, the potential assets become hard to track. You know life is good when you can't remember exactly how many horses you have owned.

Perhaps Joe Torre doesn't even remember the number of double plays he grounded into when playing with the Mets.

(4 in one game).

TKS-After the game Torre thanked 2nd baseman Felix Milan for getting on 4 times to make the feat possible.
