Among the people from the baseball community to be honored are NY Yankees community consultant Ray Negron. Ray is receiving the Jim Quigley Memorial Award for baseball service. This award represents commitment to the game of baseball and community outreach.
Negron commented about the honor,  “I’m just a very lucky and grateful guy.  All my blessings come because of the kindness and generosity that George Steinbrenner bestowed upon me and the fact that the Steinbrenner family continue to give me and other people for the last 45 years.  The Yankees are a very fine tuned machine on the field and they do the same off the field.”
“I’m just so happy that I am allowed to help the Yankee brand make New York better for people in need,” Negron said.
Negron also thanked Yankees executives Randy Levine and Lonn Trost for always being there for what he says, “My people of the Bronx.”   “I was born here, I have a lot of family here, so you can imagine this really means a lot.  Also thanks again to Billy Blitzer and the Scouts Association. “
Ray Negron is also a contributing columnist with the Bronx Chronicle,, and Newsmax. Currently the story of his life with the New York Yankees and history with the late George Steinbrenner are chronicled on stage with the production of “Batboy” Yankee Miracles which is also a best selling book on
