Nady gets his ring
Via Sports Illustrated:
Talk about an unexpected guest — and what a treat, too!Cubs outfielder Xavier Nady received his 2009 World Series ring on Wednesday when New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman delivered the prize to Citi Field before Chicago faced the New York Mets.
Nady says he had no idea when he was going to get the ring. He praised Cashman for bringing it over himself and says the ring is “gorgeous.”
Classy move by Brian Cashman. Nady played in only 7 games last season before having to undergo season-ending surgery (Tommy John). Prior to that, in 2008, Nady hit .268/.320/.474 with 12 home runs over 59 games with the Yankees. If he had been healthy last season, I wonder if he would have still received a World Series ring…
