Dodgers' Joe Torre says he will make decision on retirement by Labor Day

Los Angeles Dodgers manager Joe Torre says he will decide by Labor Day if he will retire after the season.

That doesn't mean he'll make his decision public by the first week of September.

The 70-year-old Torre, in the last season of his three-year contract with the Dodgers, says he will not announce his plans until the team's postseason outlook is clear. The Dodgers entered Saturday night's game against the Atlanta Braves 10 games behind first-place San Diego in the NL West.

Torre says he hopes he still has an option to return to the Dodgers in 2011.

He says he still enjoys managing and says he is "very comfortable" with the Dodgers.
