Arguably the most famous bat boy in Yankees history, Luis "Squeegee" Castillo worked with the team during their glory years from 1998–2005, including their epic championship battles with the Boston Red Sox. He traveled on the road with them, went to spring training with them, and even vacationed with them. He partied with players and worked with Joe Torre, Brian Cashman, Mel Stottlemyre, and George Steinbrenner. He was there for David Wells’s perfect game in 1998, and he helped David Cone warm up for his 1999 perfect game.
Now, readers will get a look inside the locker room doors as Castillo takes them places few fans get to see and reveals stories only a true clubhouse insider (and the last Yankee batboy not required to sign a confidentiality agreement!) could tell.
