Baseball Notebook: Torre not at stadium

Associated Press
The baseball notebook …
BRIARCLIFF MANOR, N.Y. ó Joe Torre was close, about 28 miles from the House That Ruth Built on Monday, not 3,000 miles and a Left Coast mind-set away. Still, the tug of history wasn’t pulling him any nearer.
He watched Tuesday night’s All-Star Game on television, not from the field-level view he had for 12 years as New York Yankees manager. For Torre, there are no regrets.
The final game in his 12-year Yankee tenure was a 6-4 loss to the Cleveland Indians last Oct. 8.
“When I left Yankee Stadium, I had a sense it was going to be the last time I left there,” Torre said at a Westchester golf outing to support his Safe at Home Foundation. “I don’t think I need to see it one more time just to get that nostalgic feel for it. I have that … It would have been a little different perspective, being in the National League dugout and looking from the other side, it’d be a little strange. … I’m looking forward to watching it from a distance.”
AROD’S WIFE
MIAMIó The wife of Alex Rodriguez wants to know if the New York Yankees star hired private detectives or installed wiretaps to spy on her.
Cynthia Rodriguez’s lawyers demanded evidence of any such surveillance as part of a routine request filed in Miami-Dade Circuit Court last week in their divorce case.
The document asks for any tape recordings, photographs, reports from investigators or results from possible wiretaps.
Cynthia Rodriguez filed for divorce last week after more than five years of marriage, citing her husband’s alleged infidelity. She wants their $12 million waterfront mansion in Coral Gables, a luxury SUV, alimony and financial support for their two young daughters.
HOSPITALIZED
NEW YORK ó Tim Lincecum was hospitalized Tuesday with flulike symptoms, preventing the young San Francisco Giants star from attending his first All-Star game.
Lincecum was taken from his hotel to New York Presbyterian Hospital after feeling ill early in the day, said Katy Feeney, senior vice president in the commissioner’s office.
The right-hander was released later in the afternoon after getting treatment for flulike symptoms and dehydration.
