Yankee Miracles Reviews
This page features reviews of Yankee Miracles.
“Yankee fans, of which I am one, will embrace Yankee Miracles: Life with the Boss and the Bronx Bombers. Full of fascinating personal anecdotes and behind-the-scenes details, it brings back memories of what it was like to be in Yankee Stadium on a warm summer afternoon. It is a delightful book, even if one is a devotee of some other benighted team.”

"I defy anyone to read Ray Negron’s remarkable story and not come away believing that there still can be genuine heart, soul, and even redemption in the games we watch and play.”

I cried and loved Yankee Miracles. Only Ray could have told these stories, and only he could capture Thurman and The Boss the way he did because of his unique relationship with them both.

“Yankee Miracles: Life with the Boss and the Bronx Bombers” is not a book about baseball. Ray Negron and Sally Cook tell a compelling tale of redemption, of second chances, of unheralded gestures and of touching personal connections spanning nearly 40 years inside the hallowed walls of both incarnations of Yankee Stadium. Negron’s account of a lifetime of “giving back” – with the help of one pinstriped great after another, from Billy Martin and Thurman Munson to Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez -- after George Steinbrenner caught him spray-painting graffiti outside the original Stadium is a must-read window into the behind-the-scenes happenings and community involvement of baseball’s most successful franchise.

From the streets of Brooklyn to the executive suites of Yankee Stadium, Ray Negron has lived a supremely unlikely life of survival and achievement. All of us can be inspired by the story of this quintessential American dreamer and striver, a man who has seen it all, the best and the worst our society has to offer, and has emerged triumphant. Negron also happens to be the ultimate Yankees insider, for decades the team’s secret weapon and an eyewitness to the long reign of George Steinbrenner. To know Negron, as I have since 1978, is to understand why Steinbrenner valued him so much.
