Torre, who got a congratulatory call from Cashman the day the Dodgers clinched the NL West title, will be back in New York after the World Series. He and Ali are hosting a reunion of the 1998 World Series championship team at their Safe at Home Foundation dinner Nov. 7. The Yankees plan to have a final ceremony two days later at the Stadium.The Yankees better not screw this one up. He wants to be there so they better invite him. I don't know if Hank and Hal realize how bad the organization will look if they don't. It's bad enough they didn't acknowledge him during the ceremony at the final game.
"I would like to go," says Torre, who plans to get a couple of seats from the stadium. "It would be nice to say good-bye.
"I came from a very special place. It's tough to compare Yankee Stadium to anything else. Hopefully, we can create some new memories here."
