He Loved his Yankees!”  Terre Blair Hamlisch.

Terre and Torre 9-20-2012

When Marvin was performing, in the old days before Smartphones, during the play‐off season, messages were being relayed from the side door of the stage onto the stage. There would be somebody pointing with their hands: “Five” — “Two.” And then the response with Marvin’s “thumbs up” will follow. — Conductor J. Ernest Green.

He really loved Joe Torre:

He was my greatest fan, because every time we lost a game, it was somebody else’s fault. It was never my fault.” Joe Torre.
