COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Businesses near the National Baseball Hall of Fame are gearing up for this weekend.
So is former New York Yankees skipper Joe Torre.
Cooperstown is expected to be packed with tens of thousands of people for Sunday’s induction ceremony featuring Torre, Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine, Frank Thomas, Bobby Cox and Tony La Russa.
On WFAN radio last week, Torre said being inducted with fellow managers Cox and La Russa “couldn’t be any sweeter.”
“Even though you know it may be coming, it still catches you, and it just knocks your socks off,” Torre said, referring to when he got the Hall call. “It was amazing. The frustrating part for me: I said, ‘Who else got in?’ And they wouldn’t tell me.”
