4/22 It's all about the ring
Yankees general manager Brian Cashman delivered Xavier Nady’s 2009 World Series championship ring to him personally on Wednesday at Citi Field. Nady played for the Yankees in 2008-09, but appeared in just seven games last season before needing Tommy John surgery, again, on his right elbow. He still got a ring, which was his first.
“I didn’t expect that — it meant a lot,” Nady said Thursday of the diamond-studded ring. It’s really gorgeous.”
The white gold ring has a blue stone in the center and 119 diamonds totaling nearly 4 carats. And of course, there’s the trademark interlocking “NY.”
