The musical Bat Boy: A Yankee Miracle debuts at the Tilles Center for the Performing Arts at LIU Post in Brookville on Tuesday.
Bat Boy is the story of Ray Negron, told by Ray himself, who became a batboy for the NY Yankees after he, and his friends, were caught spray-painting the walls of Yankee Stadium by none other than George Steinbrenner.
After being interviewed several times on Steve Vaccaro and Ray Negron’s radio and podcast show on the Village Connection Network, Ray was very impressed by the talent that was produced by Rock-n-Roll U (RNRU) and requested that the RNRU Choir perform the song “You’ll be in My Heart” in “Bat Boy: A Yankee Miracle.”
In addition, three RNRU students, 9-year-old Cassidy Gill of Commack, 7-year-old Conner Gill of Commack, and 9-year-old Juliana Aspromonti of Dix Hills, have been cast in the production as the children of NY Yankee legend Thurman Munson.
