Torre to re­call his New York Yan­kee years in a mem­oir

The Covington News - - SPORTS -

NEW YORK— Joe Torre, named last week as man­ager of the Los An­ge­les Dodgers af­ter end­ing a 12-year reign with the New York Yan­kees, is work­ing on a mem­oir.

The book, cur­rently un­ti­tled, will be co-au­thored by Sports Il­lus­trated’s Tom Verducci and will in­clude Torre’s mem­o­ries of the Yan­kees, with whom he won four­World Se­ries cham­pi­onships, and gen­eral thoughts on the game.

Dou­ble­day, an im­print of Ran­dom House Inc., will pub­lish the book in the spring of 2009.

“Base­ball has changed dra­mat­i­cally since I be­gan my ten­ure with the Yan­kees,” Torre said in a state­ment is­sued Thurs­day by Dou­ble­day. “It was a won­der­ful 12 years and I look for­ward to shar­ing my thoughts and per­spec­tive on how the game has evolved.”

Ac­cord­ing to Dou­ble­day, Torre will ex­plain his “de­ci­sion to walk way from the job of man­ager of the Yan­kees, but only as the endgame in ex­plain­ing in un­prece­dented de­tail what his­tory will record as the ‘Torre Era.’”
