This weekend, Joe Girardi is helping raise money for his local library. Here are the details from the library itself. For more information, follow this link to the library’s website. 

Joe Girardi, New York Yankees Manager and Harrison resident, is donating his time for an autograph signing at the Harrison Public Library on Sunday, January 29th, from noon to-1:00 p.m. The library is located at 2 Bruce Avenue, and the event is open to everyone.

Girardi’s fundraiser, which supports the Harrison Public Library Foundation, will be divided into two consecutive segments, beginning with a MVP Private Session from noon to 12:20 p.m. Patrons will have the opportunity to get their photo taken with Girardi, and will receive a personal autograph on two of their sports items. A limited number of tickets is available at a cost of $225, and must be purchased online in advance.

The second portion of Girardi’s visit will be an open autograph signing on a first come first served basis from 12:20 p.m. ending at 1 p.m. Fans are encouraged to bring their sport items for Girardi’s signature. Costs for autographs are: $35 for cards or photos, $50 for baseballs or bats, and $100 for uniforms or any other items. Attendees are urged to arrive early to assure enough time to meet Girardi.

The Harrison Public Library Foundation was formed in November 2010 with the goal of improving and enhancing the Library, to support its programs and abilities, and to solidify its presence at the heart of the community. Harrison Public Library Foundation Board President Stephen Hicks is extremely grateful and very excited that Mr. Girardi is volunteering his time for our first fundraising event to benefit the Harrison Public Library. The Foundation is firmly committed to providing Harrison residents with an up-to-date library that will also be a valuable resource for future Harrison generations.

The Trustees of the Harrison Public Library, in consultation with the Foundation, have chosen the modernizing and renovation of the downtown library facility as the first step in the reinvigoration of the Public Library.

    Best Ever To Do It – Ratings prove… what? People watch survivor. people watcht he Jersey shore.

    So more ratings to me means more stupid people watching :)


    Ratings prove that the NBA has gained some of the popularity they loss when Jordan left. You might not like it and that’s fine but the league is doing better now than it was years ago.

    Gotta give Girardi for having guts, with all of these contract killers out looking for him.

    Oh lawd, Lew Wolff wants to meet one on one with A’s fans. This can only end poorly.


    Well, that should take about 5 minutes.

    Wonder if this means Girardi will only play catchers who can read?

    Here’s an interesting retrospective read on a Yankee Grade C prospect –

    who made millions in his baseball career.

    Ran into Bob Boone today as we both have the same knee Doc……He was full of praise for Jorge Posada and was very clear that Jorge should be in the HOF by the summer of 2022….The only delay would be because of some idiot writer with a hard on for # 20
