Houk succeeded the legendary Casey Stengel as manager of the New York Yankees in 1961 and led the team to three straight American League titles and World Series championships in 1961 and 1962. Following a stint as the Yankees general manager, he returned to manage the team from 1966-1973. His final job in baseball was as an adviser to the young Minnesota Twins general manager, Andy MacPhail, whose father, Lee, was one of Houk's best friends from his years with the Yankees.
