I’ve given props to Alex Belth of Bronx Banter before. His blog was an inspiration for this one.
Check out the series of stories he is doing on Ray Negron. One of the cast of characters around the Yankees, Negron started out as a bat boy and is now an advisor to George Steinbrenner. He’s made a career of befriending the right people.
Alex is a terrific writer and this is a real behind-the-scenes tale. So check it out.
