What is your take on this story?? I was the Bullpen Catcher with the (NY-Y) AAA-Columbus Clippers back in 1996 making $25 a game when they won the Goveners Cup Championship. When celebrating the Championship in the club house, we were all told to get our Rings ordered by the GM. The GM told me that sense I was with the team for all 162+/- games that I would be able to order a Ring as well. Once the Rings came in we were able to pick them up at the front office or have them sent to us. I decided that I would pick mine up. When I went in to pick up my Ring The GM asked me if I had the $650 to pay for my Ring. I said what $$$ are you talking about. He said the $$$ that you need to buy your Ring. I told him that I had NO $$$ for the Ring because he never told me that I would have to purchase it. His reply was: "What, do you think that George Steinbrenner is made of money and will just buy a Ring for anyone." I was so angry that I started to find out if others in the front office and club house were getting free Rings. As it turned out, they were all getting Rings for free. Once the word got back to the GM that I was asking questions about everyone else getting free Rings, he told me that I would never get the Ring and that he was sending it back to the dealer. Does anyone else have a similar story to tell?
