Report: Joe Torre to Be Named to MLB Post by Bud Selig
The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Friday because commissioner Bud Selig isn't expected to formally introduce Torre until Saturday.
Major League Baseball said Friday that Selig would make a major announcement at the new Salt River Fields ballpark, the spring facility for the Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies.
The 70-year-old Torre won four World Series titles for the New York Yankees in a 29-year career as a manager, retiring after last season following three years with the Los Angeles Dodgers. He played parts of 18 seasons in the majors.
