Updated at 3:43 p.m.
Joe Torre will step down as manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers after the season and will be replaced by Don Mattingly.
Mattingly, who worked with Torre with the New York Yankees, has been the Dodgers' hitting coach since joining Torre, 70, in LA in 2008.
"The opportunity to manage the Los Angeles Dodgers is truly an honor," Mattingly said in a statement released by the Dodgers. "There are few organizations in the world with the history, tradition and track record of success as the Dodgers. I'm looking forward to continuing what I came here to accomplish with Joe and that's to win a world championship."
