About

Ray Negron was living every boy’s dream as the batboy for the baseball world champions, the Yankees.

As a teenager, Ray skipped the last day of his junior year of high school. As he was spray painting the Yankees Stadium.  But, Yankees owner George Steinbrenner collared Ray for spraying graffiti on the side of the stadium and in order to pay off the damages Mr. Steinbrenner made him work off his damages.  Ray became the Yankees bat boy and remained with the organization for 46 years and was one of the team’s most trusted advisors.

Enjoy a wonderful play about personal responsibility, finding your purpose, and how second chances changed on man’s life beyond his wildest dreams.

Ray Negron was not only a batboy he also played professional baseball for the Pittsburgh Pirates and has appeared in several motion pictures and was a producer from this past summer hit The Bottom of the Ninth starring Sofía Vergara.  Currently, Ray is a Yankees community consultant and special advisor to Team President Randy Levine.
