There are five Yankees managers who took their teams to the postseason every year they were in charge. The list of Yankees managers includes Joe Torre, the manager responsible for 4 World Series titles and 6 pennants in 12 seasons. Another was Ralph Houk, who won three pennants in his first three seasons and two World Series in his first two seasons. Yogi Berra and Dick Howser are the other two Yankees managers with that perfect postseason record.
