Joe Torre is writing a book about his time with the Yanks. CNN/SI has the story:
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 four World Series championships, and general
thoughts on the game.
Doubleday, an imprint of Random House Inc., will publish the book in the spring of 2009."
YFSF recently received a copy of the working manuscript. The opening lines of the chapter titled "Scott Proctor’s Right Arm" are intriguing.
"Proctor’s arm, light of my life, fire of my loins. My sin, my soul. Proc-tor’s-arm. The tip of the tongue taking a trip of three steps down to tap, at three, on the teeth. Proc. Tor’s. Arm."
Should be an interesting read for Yanks fans when it comes out.
