BC: Rob George, This one's For You!


1: For his wisdom, guidance, dedication and continued passion, we dedicate this book to you, Rob George. We would not be a success if it weren't for you. The Ambassadors

2: My office is at Yankee stadium. Yes, dreams do come true. Derek Jeter

4: Mr. George, It has been an absolute pleasure to work with you as a part of the New York Yankees Guest Relations team. I think what I'll miss most is your sense of humor and your visits to Gate 4 (on sunny days of course...lol!). We've seen some interesting, scary and just down right whacky things on the corner of 161st & Jerome, but in the end, they were always good for a laugh. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be a part of the Yankees' championship tradition. Best wishes in your post-"How May I Help You?" endeavors. Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if one day you were giving guest lectures on your upcoming book or making it to the semi-finals of "Last Comic Standing." The Great Hall won't be the same without you, but there will always be a spot for you on the YMCA line. Thanks for everything and keep giving 'em the pickle! Cedric

5: Rob, I hope you enjoyed your time in Yankee Stadium dealing with our fat, obnoxious, spoiled, whiny fans. I'm obviously kidding....they're not all fat. Give 'em the pickle I say. Right in the "you know where". Seriously though, thanks again for everything. I wish you the best and hope we stay in touch. -Mark Burritt

7: "It's something inside his heart that's bigger than anything. He's got the heart of a lion about to grab something." - Darryl Strawberry on David Cone

8: Thank you Rob George for all the good times. You understood what we went through with all the fans at the stadium, because you went through it too. When we were stuck in the stadium on June 18th you were just as confused as we were. When we were not selling beer and ran out of cold water for the All State event, you were there, telling me what to tell those fans. My favorite memory would have to be your meeting before the Slug fest at the stadium, where you read us our instructions and notes for the day of your blackberry. ; D that really set the tone for the night. I loved hearing you and Howie going back and forth about the Rings and everything else. My fondest memories of you Rob, are the times we spoke of your children. I remember when we spoke of how your children would get blue and pink yankee bags for school (which they wound up not getting). I loved talking with you about silly bandz and how they were taking over as the latest new toy. It has been great working with you and you will be missed. Thank you for all you have done for the Yankees, our dept and the people we worked for and with. This organization is losing a star player in you. Marina

9: There was just to many good times to talk about. So instead of saying one event. I would just like to tell Rob he will not just be missed at the ticket line, but everywhere through out the ball park. And I know I don't have to wish him luck, because a great guy like Rob will do well in no matter what he does. Take care Rob. Bocca

10: My great moment with Rob was last season during the Yankees / Mets series. We were in the food court in the last few innings of the game waiting to disperse the crowd to other exits to alleviate congestion. The Yankees were losing in the 9th inning with two on and two outs and we were discussing how they needed another miracle walk off to win, just then A-Rod hit the high pop up to second and we both glanced at each other and shrugged our shoulders, and then Castillo dropped the ball and our jaws dropped to the floor in disbelief. He looked at me and said "That's gonna be one rough ride home for Met fans" Ty

11: Rob, Thank you for bringing me into such a great organization! With much appreciation and well wishes, Dulce Gomez. | Being that it was my first year at the stadium,one of my most memorable moments shared with Mr.George was at my interview! Never-the-less...I was nervous beyond belief,partially because of the fact that I elected to drive to the stadium,and ended up arriving two hours late to my interview! Frightened as I was,Mr.George immediately put me at ease. His kind smile eased my nerves,and I sailed through the interview. I will always be grateful that he still allowed me to be interview that day,and his calming demeanor will be greatly missed. Never without a smile...I wish Mr.George all of the success in the world. I thank him for giving me the opportunity to work for an incredible orgainzation...here's to his future!!! Jacqueline Honulik | Rob My first rain delay and my first Yankees red sox seriese as an ambassador here at the stadium was kept upbeat and positve by your inspirational and satiractle words. We had a good laugh and I passed those good vibes on to every person to cross my path at the top of the steps at gate 2 that night, even redsox fans. Thank you for that day and everyday, best of luck in the future. Linzi Jean Fastiggi

12: My favorite times with George is when he comes down to the scoreboard (in right field) and we just joke around about the people in the stands. Tim and i actually wait for him to come down because we think he is HILARIOUS. Leah Green

13: well my latest and greatest experience was doing scoreboard on my birthday and meeting David Aardsma of the Seattle Mariners. But my greatest memory of Rob and what I will remember most is he was always there to lend a helping hand. Every singe game Rob comes out to Babe Ruth Plaza and helps by answering some of the fans questions. Also my fondest memory of Rob is when he became a hand model for about 5 minutes when fans realized he was wearing a world series ring the fans all wanted to take pictures with the ring or of the ring he allowed them to. But what I think i will remember most is his caring nature always making sure his ambassadors were keeping hydrated. oh and who can forget that hand shake after game 6 of the world series with him saying congratulations on the world championship. He will be missed. Heather Zwillenberg

14: Since I am fairly new to the Guest Services family, my greatest experience at Yankee Stadium had to have been my first day as an ambassador. Rob George was very welcoming and I automatically felt at home with all of the other ambassadors. I am positive that Rob will be missed. :( Ramata Fall | "Thank you for always providing me with guidance and suggestions, as well as always treating my parents with the utmost respect whenever they came as fans. You truly made the experience as an ambassador exponentially better for me, and I will never forget that. Best of luck in the future. - Josh Friedman" Does this work?

15: A recent Rob George story happened in during the Mets series. I was working in the bleachers when I came across Rob graciously taking a picture of a husband, wife and young fan. After taking the picture and returning the camera Rob continued with his rounds. The husband turned to the wife and said, " I don't know who that was but the guy who just took our picture had a World Series ring!" Thanks for putting this together! Chris Coyne | Dear Rob, It has been absolutely wonderful working for you. It was great to work alongside you for a little bit on the 4th of July. I will miss your sense of humor and your impeccable style! Best of luck to you for the future! Sincerely, Amanda DiGioia | From the first day of orientation, I new I was in the right place. You get one first impression and my take on Rob was, that of being professional, and knowledgeable, and most importantly his values were beyond reproach. Rob is the type of person that you want to have as a mentor and someone to emulate. I never witnessed him in a bad mood and appreciate that he leads by example. It was just the other day that Rob and I had a chance to work side by side. I was posted outside ADA pickup and Mr. George popped out, I believe to make sure I was there, and as usual to say hello. I was inundated and Rob quickly picked up the slack. For the next 10 minutes we both provided non stop exceptional customer service rattling off instructions and directions to the tune that we didn't have time to acknowledge each other. Finally when the barrage sub sided Rob turned to me and gave me a fist pump and together we high five. It was incredibly inspirational, that Rob was so excited and proud of his work. It was obvious his persona allows him to be great at what he does. I on the other hand, I was happy to have gotten through the chaos, but honored by the fact that, I had the opportunity to work with Mr. George. I'll miss being around a great person, my learning curve just took a hit and Yankee Stadium won't be same. Howard Rosenberg

17: This one was from last year but it was a great experience for me, while working the museum line I had a father who called me over stating his son had something to ask me. Of course he asked me for Derek Jeter's autograph while he waited on a very long line. What to do, I did everything possible to keep the kid occupied and happy with kid jokes and baseball stories. Make a long story short when father and son got close to the front of the line they called me over with another question. To my surprise and joy the little boy asked me for my autograph and I signed his baseball cap. His father thanked me for all I did for his son and stated Yankee win or lose today you made my sons day. I felt like I accomplished what I was hired to do and the reward was the little boy's happiness. Sergio Blanco | My (3) most memorable experience's... you pick which one you want to use.. 1) Finding a scared little lost boy....and reuniting him with his (very worried and scared Dad). Joanna received a wonderful e-mail from the Dad, thanking me for returning his most precious possesion. I still have the e-mail...and it chokes me up every time!! 2) Working the night Jeter broke Gerhig's hit record..and as an added bonus, my 30 year old daughter was there as a guest with some out of town friends. It was wonderful to say we were both there that night.... despite the awful weather & rain delay! 3) Working the final game (6) of the 2009 World Series!!! I have never been to a World Series Game... and YANKEE"S WIN.....THEEEEEEEEEE Yankee's WIN!!!!! Queue...New York, New York!! Wendy Smith | One great experience that I had while working in Yankees stadium was doing an anniversary surprise from a husband to a wife, with Kevin and my other fellow ambassadors. It felt wonderful to be a part of such a memorable day. By cheering these two couples on and having the rest of the section follow, I knew from that moment that there is nothing better than Yankees Pride. Like I was taught from Rob George's informative DVD for orientation "A team are people that goes out their way to make others look good" and thats what it is all about! De'lorien brown

18: To Mr. Rob George aka R-Diddy, Working at Yankee Stadium has been a complete joy but mostly because of you. You have made my experience at the stadium all the worth while. You have a way to turn every frown upside down and for that you will continue to be blessed in life. You have imprinted yourself on all of our hearts and we will miss you but i guess it's only fair that the rest of the world gets it's turn. Thank you Mr. George for being you. You will never be forgotten. David Padilla | Dear Mr. George, Where should I even start? From Great Hall Booth craziness to the relaxing scoreboard, I must say we've had amazing times together. I am truly honored to have been a part of your years at the new Yankee Stadium. I will forever treasure that "picture" because it will remind me of how great of a person you are. Everyday I came into work I had a huge smile on my face. That's all because of you, Rob George. I loved coming into work because you made it enjoyable! I wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors. I really do hope you come visit us during the rest of this season plus the many more seasons to come! You will be missed! Thanks for everything you have done for me and the Ambassador team! Sincerely, Sharon Schwartz
