Tampa, Fla. Former major-leaguer Frank Torre should find out next week whether one of his relatives is a match for a kidney transplant.
The brother of New York Yankees manager Joe Torre needs the procedure because of medication he has taken since receiving a new heart more than a decade ago.
"He has to wait until next week," Joe Torre said Thursday. "Until they find out if it's a match. They've got all the stuff. There's a number of tests they have to run."
The 75-year-old Frank Torre, who spent seven seasons with the Milwaukee Braves and Philadelphia Phillies from 1956-63, had a heart transplant in October 1996.
The following day he watched from his hospital bed as his brother managed the Yankees to victory in the World Series clincher against Atlanta.
