Joe Torre’s daughter made a catch that trumps anything in A-Rod's highlight reel.

Cristina Torre Wednesday saved 1-year-old Dylan Miller's life after catching the tot, who was falling off of the awning of a Brooklyn storefront, police said Thursday.

The child had gotten past a cardboard barrier while his parents were sleeping, and crawled onto a fire escape, then tumbled onto the awning. He was treated for minor injuries at Brooklyn's Lutheran Hospital following the fall.

“All of a sudden it slipped, and it was dangling and holding on with its hands,” Cristina, 44, told WNBC Wednesday. “I just put out my arms, and literally, it was effortless. It was meant to be. He landed in my arms.”

Cristina's father Joe, a baseball lifer and four-time World Series-winning manager with the New York Yankees, told the New York Post, “She always had good hands -- I don’t know if they’re mine or not -- I’m so proud of her.’’

Authorities subsequently charged Dylan's parents -- Tiffany Demitro, 24, and Sam Miller, 23 -- with reckless endangerment and acting in a manner injurious to a child under 17, police said. Three other children were removed from the home by officials with New York's Administration for Children’s Services.
