Manuel Asks Torre to Join Him at All-Star Game
He hinted he had, but he wasn’t ready to announce them.
But Los Angeles Dodgers manager Joe Torre let the cat out of the bag Wednesday. He has been asked, and he is going.
“I’m honored he asked me and I;m definitely going to go,” Torre said. “It will be fun. It’s in St. Louis, and going back there will be nice. Charlie called me about it a week ago. At the time, I was scheduled to do something, get together for my sister’s 80th birthday, which I suppose I gave away now. We’ll have to restructure that. It’s been a while. It’s a great perk. I’ll just show up and have fun, I don’t have to worry about carrying around a fungo bat with me.”
Torre chose Manuel to be part of his American League staff in 2002.
The Indians fired Manuel the next day.
MLB Productions crews have been following the Phillies the past few weeks, putting together The Pen, the reality show which debuts on MLB Network on June 14. The crew recently went fishing with Clay Condrey, Chad Durbin and Ryan Madson. Condrey caught the most fish, which should surprise nobody. He’s an avid outdoorsman.
