Inside Man: A Bronx Tale: Bronx Banter's Alex Belth profiles Ray Negron. His life in baseball began in 1973, when Steinbrenner himself caught the teenager spray painting an "NY" logo on the outside of the Stadium and gave him a job as a bat boy. "Negron has done everything from shine the players' shoes and collect their dirty jockstraps, to bring them food from their favorite restaurants and park their cars. He has been an agent, an actor, an advisor, and a liaison; a confidant, a sounding board and a whipping boy to some of the biggest egos in the game. He is whatever he needs to be."

Hall of Fame catcher Yogi Berra passes away

Thanks Howard. Always enjoy hearing about players before my time, especially Berra. Him being a 'bad pitch' hitter is something that always stuck with me. And that his physique didn't necessarily line up with his abilities.

My mom has a ball signed by a handful of old Yankees (getting the signatures back in the days when all you had to do was wait for them in the players lot). Even though he had nothing to do with getting those signatures, my dad loves to boast that both Yogi and Phil Linz (of the harmonica incident) are on there.

There were so many articles and whatnot out today, but a couple things that struck me. Alex Belth's obit for SI. And the account of Berra's time in WWII.

Hall of Fame catcher Yogi Berra passes away

This seriously bums me out. One of the few celebrities I've actually mourned.

I'm too young to have seen him play, but he was still my favorite Yankee. The only reason I got to see David Cone's perfect game in person was because it was the day that Yogi made his return to Yankee Stadium after he and Steinbrenner finally reconciled.

Tonight I will be pouring a bit of Yoohoo out for #8.
