RAY NEGRON: A TRUE YANKEE MIRACLE

In his new book “Yankee Miracles”, Negron recounts his life since that fateful day in 1973. He tells of his special friendships with many Yankee greats including Billy Martin, Reggie Jackson, Thurman Munson, Alex Rodriguez and the Boss himself. He gives us an insight like none I have ever read before to the very human emotions that some of our favorite players have encountered.
“Yankees Miracles” was an incredible read, not just for Yankees fans but also for everyone who loves baseball. It is a wonderful reminder to never stop chasing your dreams and believing in miracles. We live in a world where that message is often muted into nonexistence. Ray Negron uses anecdotes and truly heartfelt stories to convey that beautifully.
“Yankees Miracles” is available now at bookstores. A portion of the proceeds goes to help the Boys and Girls Club and Cancer Research. I highly recommend this book to everyone who is a Yankee fan and who has ever wanted a deeper, truer understanding of the men who have worn pinstripes.
Ray's website is YankeeMiracles.com. Stay tuned for my interview with Mr. Negron soon on Bleeding Yankee Blue!
