August 30, 1965: The day that Casey Stengel retired

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Let’s remember Casey Stengel, who retired on this day in 1965.    

Along the way, he managed the Brooklyn Dodgers (1934-1936), Boston Braves (1938-1943) and took over the New York Yankees in 1949 when he replaced the retiring Joe McCarthy.  He was the Mets’ first manager in 1962 after getting pushed into retirement by the Yankees.

Casey won 1, 149 games (696 losses) over 12 seasons with the Yankees, including 10 AL pennants and seven World Series rings.  

He was quite a character as well as an amazing manager.  Stengel’s critics say that he was a “button pusher” because he had great teams.  In fact, he was the first manager to use the platoon system (lefty batter vs righthanded pitcher) and was a great judge of talent.  

Casey was great.
