The crowds turned out early at the Barnes & Noble on Fifth Avenue for Joe Torre’s book signing. Fans waited in the snow and the line twisted around the corner.
Torre spoke to media at noon and said much of the same things he’s said in previous interviews, including that he has no regrets about anything in the book.
Torre was questioned several times about whether he felt he had violated the clubhouse trust he so often endorsed and said he felt he had absolutely not violated that. He said he did not seek out any players whom he wrote about in the book, but added that it was no surprise that we writing it — his first meeting with co-author Tom Verducci was in spring training of 2007.
More to come later, including audio.
