Good first day, everyone. Five solid posts today – no one can say I’m a slow starter (though, historically, Mark Teixeira is. Just sayin’).
Tomorrow will be a lot of Joe Torre. Quick review:
12:30 p.m.: Torre will be signing books at the Barnes and Noble at 555 5th Ave.
2 p.m. (or thereabouts): A Torre interview will be heard on 1050 ESPN Radio’s Michael Kay show, though I don’t believe Michael Kay will be doing the interviewing. Info is sketchy, but it sounds like someone from ESPN’s home office in Bristol will interview Torre and then it will be broadcast during Kay’s show. We’ll see.
4 p.m.: Interview with WFAN’s Mike Francesa.
7 p.m.: Signing at the Yogi Berra Museum in New Jersey
Torre will also be on NPR’s “All Things Considered” show, which airs in New York from 4-6:30 p.m. I’ll be in the city tomorrow to see how he is received at the Manhattan signing and will update throughout the day. Anyone who sees/hears him doing the other appearances should feel free to pitch in with anything interesting.
Now, to leave you on a lighter note: What do you think would happen to the board operator at YES if this happened during a rain delay?
Great job today. Enjoy the pinch-hitter post and see you tomorrow.
