'Yankee Miracles' book by Ray Negron: Life as a Yankee 'lifer'

'Yankee Miracles' book by Ray Negron: Life as a Yankee 'lifer'
BY JERRY MILANI

There is probably no one, whose name isn’t Steinbrenner, who has experienced more time inside the Yankee organization in the past 40 years than longtime employee Ray Negron.

From the highs of championships to the lows of a superstar life cut short, the Queens native has seen it all from the old to the new Yankee Stadium, with a stop at Shea for a few early years in between. Now the affable advisor, community activist and bestselling children’s author brings fans inside the life in pinstripes with his recently published memoir Yankee Miracles, co-authored with Sally Cook.

“It is like a soundtrack, each chapter tied to a song from a different period of the last 40 years,” he said in a recent conversation. “I have lead an amazing career to this point and I felt it was time to tell the behind the scenes stories of these great athletes and the relationship I had with ‘The Boss’ himself, Mr. George Steinbrenner.”
