Tonight is a great night. Mickey and I are celebrating Mick's Grandma's birthday. We will be playing some great music in the second half hour of the show. In the first half, we will read The Greatest Story Never Told by Ray Negron and then have Ray talk with us for a while.
Ray Negron is from New York. His first job as a New York Yankee batboy came when Yankee owner George Steinbrenner caught young Ray scrawling a Yankee logo on a Yankee Stadium wall. Steinbrenner hired him in the 70's and propelled him into a “dream job”. Despite his young age, Ray was a positive influence in the fiery clubhouse that included manager Billy Martin, superstar Reggie Jackson, the legendary Thurman Munson, and more.
