Joe Torre says it's hard to believe it's been 20 years since he managed arguably the greatest team in baseball history.

"It's like being on a subway platform, and the trains go by. And of course, the older you get, you realize you quickly things go by, and it's like a snap of the fingers," the former Yankees skipper told WFAN's Evan Roberts on Thursday.

Roberts was broadcasting live from Torre's Safe at Home Foundation Charity Golf & Tennis Classic at Sleepy Hollow Country Club in Westchester County. Torre did the interview by phone, unable to attend because he was sick.

The 1998 Yankees won 114 games in the regular season and 125 overall, an MLB record.
