Yankee Miracles: Life with the Boss and the Bronx Bombers by Ray Negron


“You don’t need to be a Yankees fan to love Yankee Miracles.”—Yogi Berra

If it was once now not all so true, you’d think it was once a fairy story. A seventeen-year-vintage from Queens spray paints graffiti on Yankee Stadium and gets nabbed via George Steinbrenner himself. contrary to his gruff public image, the Boss—driven via a compassionate inside voice—reclaims the teenager at a time while the Bronx is actually burning. therefore begins the unlikeliest of baseball stories, one during which Ray Negron is transformed from street kid to batboy and beyond. Befriending a lot of prime league baseball’s greatest stars—Billy Martin, Reggie Jackson, Munson, Mantle, Catfish, A-Rod, Jeter, even Mrs. Lou Gehrig—Negron in the long run emerges as a dynamic community chief, dedicating his own existence to helping the in poor health and rescuing generations of town kids from unfulfilled lives. Yankee Miracles is a ebook concerning the power of baseball to transform lives, about all those miracles on 161st road we by no means knew had been there. 8 pictures
