Hey, who’s the guy with Joe Torre?

There was quite a commotion on the field before the game when soccer superstar David Beckham showed up.

The Yankees, perhaps because they are such celebs themselves, are generally unimpressed by famous people. Shelley Duncan walked right over and shook Beckham’s hand as did Miguel Cairo and several other players.

Joe Torre talked to “Becks” for several minutes then invited him into the clubhouse. He posed for a bunch of photos.

“He has a very engaging personality,” Torre said. “He seemed like a very nice guy. He was very gracious to everybody.”

So in the last week, we’ve had Tyra Banks, Jon Bon Jovi and now Beckham around the team.

Alas, Bruce Springsteen and Diane Lane have been busy.
