Former New York Yankees Manager Joe Torre will visit the LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN, Monday, Oct. 29 (11:35 PM-12:37 AM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
This will be Torre's first broadcast network television interview since leaving the team. On Thursday, Oct. 18, Torre rejected a $5 million, one-year contract to return as manager of the Yankees, ending his 12-year affiliation with the team. During his tenure with the Bronx Bombers, he led them to four World Series titles, 12 straight years in the playoffs and became the second winningest manager in Yankee history.
This will be Torre's sixth appearance on the LATE SHOW. He's been interviewed by Letterman three times (Oct. 28, 1999, Oct. 26, 1998 and Oct. 28, 1996) and appeared in a remote segment during the World Series on Oct. 23, 1996. He last appeared on the show on April 10, 2006, pitching to New York Yankee Johnny Damon on 53rd Street.
Also visiting the LATE SHOW on Monday, Oct. 29 will be comic superstar Jerry Seinfeld, who stars in the new animated film, "Bee Movie".
