The man himself, Patriots coach Bill Belichick was at camp today and spent a few hours with Joe Torre. He later watched batting practice with Torre, Brian Cashman and Yogi Berra.
Being a Patriots fan since birth, I had to go over and say hello to the coach. He was very gracious. Yes, I know, I’m quite lame. But I was a sports fan before I became a sportswriter and the Pats are my team.
Torre said he and Belichick have becomes friends over the years. The Skip hangs with the bling. He’s also pals with John Wooden.
