Joe Girardi has always been a highly-respected and admired leader. An All-Star, 4-time World Series Champion (3 as a player and 1 as a manager) and leading broadcaster, Girardi’s life exemplifies the work ethic, intelligence and tenacity which brought him success throughout his life and career.

Girardi made his Major League Baseball debut in 1989. He participated in 15 seasons as a catcher in the Major Leagues with the Chicago Cubs, Colorado Rockies, St. Louis Cardinals and New York Yankees. He was a member of three World Series Championship squads and played in a total of six postseasons with the Cubs (1989), Rockies (1995) and Yankees (1996-99). While playing for the Cubs, Girardi was named the 2000 All-Star team, his only All-Star appearance. 

After retiring as a catcher in 2004, Girardi became a commentator for the YES Network, and hosted the kids-oriented Kids on Deck. Girardi, however, decided to become a coach instead by accepting a bench coach and catching instructor position with the New York Yankees. 

In October of 2005, Girardi accepted the manager position for the Florida Marlins. Because of his success and perseverance as a leader with the Marlins, Joe was awarded the National League Manager of the Year Award in 2006. In October of 2007, Girardi signed a three-year contract as manager of the Yankees. In 2009 his second year as manager, he led the Yankees to their 40th AL pennant and their 27th World Series title, his first World Series title as manager and the Yankees' first since 2000.
