    He went ten years between managerial stints between the Indians and White Sox.
    He was despised by Expo fans, when it was revealed he was replacing Felipe Alou as the team's manager.
    He landed the managerial jobs on the Expos and Marlins through nepotism, as he was close friends with the team's owner, Jeffrey Loria.
    He was fired by the Marlins after a slow start, who in turn would go on to win the World Series that season with Jack McKeon at the helm.
    He was described as being too hot headed as a manager.
    He was a member of the baseball team at Rutgers University.
    He caught Sandy Koufax's perfect game and the no hitters of both, Nolan Ryan and Bill Singer.
    He guided the White Sox to a 94 win season in his second season as the team's manager, earning the AL Manager of the Year award (1990).
    His son is former professional wrestler Dale Torborg.
    He worked in broadcasting in the years following his dismissals from the Mets and Marlins.
