The Boss is No. 1
Heard this little story in the dugout today during batting practice:
Last week, Ray Negron published his latest illustrated children’s book, “One Last Time: Good-Bye to Yankee Stadium.”
Yankees principal owner George Steinbrenner and memories of Yankee Stadium are the focus of the book.
The cover depicts Steinbrenner in an illustration wearing his familiar white
turtleneck and navy blue sport coat, giving a thumbs up sign with
his hand on the shoulder of a batboy.
Well, this week, Negron bumped into Steinbrenner here at the stadium and was congratulated on the book, which hit No. 1 in its category on Amazon.com.
“You hit No. 1,” Steinbrenner told Negron. “I’m happy for you.”
“No, Boss,” Negron replied. “I couldn’t have hit No. 1 without you. You’re on the cover. I’m happy for us.”
