He posted a 1,149-696 record for the Yankees, including 10 American League pennants and seven World Championships, although Stengel claimed the Yankees had fired him days after losing the 1960 World Series to the Pirates.

“Resigned, fired, quit, discharged, use whatever you damn please. I’ll never make the mistake of being seventy again” – CASEY STENGEL,

Third base coach Ralph Houk will replace Stengel, Houk will lead New York to 3 straight World Series, and the Yankees will win in 61,62 and lose in 63. He will move to the General Manager Position after the 63 season.
