    Question Yankee Fans?

    Was there a player, coach or anyone associated with the Yankees by the name of Glen Covington? I tried to do a search but came up empty.....I met this guy who was wearing a Yankee WS ring and that was his name............I didn't have the courage to ask him anything about it?

    Nothing came up, which means no, there wasn't a player on the Yankees by that name. He probably bought the ring at an auction or something, well if it was real.

    Hmm I don't know. My guess would be either a trainer or a front office guy. I'm pretty sure they get rings.

    This is my best guess. Couldn't find him when I searched.

    The Yankee org. are very generous to their empolyees in giving everyone WS rings such as front office,groundcrew,scouts,parking attendents etc.
    Not only players & coaches.
    I know bec I worked for the Mets in 1986 as Players & owners parking lot & was not given a ring but offered 1 for $5000 bec. I was a seasonal employee.
    The mets in 2000 finally gave all Mets empolyees NL champs rings bec. the Yanks beat them & gave all their employees rings in Subway title.
    The Mets did come thru only after Yanks show them up & pressured wilpons image as a boss.

    The Yankees are High class bec. Steinbrenner is a Great Boss while Wilpons are NOT!

    Jeff Wilpon is a Total Ego napolean that backstabs everyone.

    Ok, so please tell me where me asking about Glen Covington turned into a Wilpon bashing?
