‚ÄčIn addition to being a successful artist, Ray Negron is a sport’s executive with over forty years experience in baseball.  Ray considers himself fortunate to have been able to influence four generations of baseball players. His first job came from a chance encounter with George Steinbrenner as a youth. Ray was caught by Steinbrenner scrawling a Yankee logo on a Yankee Stadium wall and instead of punishing the erstwhile graffiti artist, Steinbrenner hired him as the Yankee bat boy and propelled him into a “dream job”; sharing the dugout with the “Bronx Zoo Yankees” of the Seventies. Despite his young age, Ray was a positive influence in the fiery clubhouse that included manager Billy Martin, superstar Reggie Jackson, the legendary Thurman Munson, and more.  Ray’s career on the baseball diamond was not limited to his batboy duties. A standout shortstop in Springfield Gardens High School, Ray was a second round draft pick for the Pittsburg Pirates in 1975.

Ray is a member of the International Latino Hall of Fame and the Ted Williams Hall of Fame for his humanitarian efforts with the children around the country.  The Department of Homeland Security honored Ray in 2007 for his leadership in the Hispanic community and his efforts in making an impact on the American society.
