[This was a story written by  Gary Gerard Hamilton] For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been looking for Baron, my favorite custodial worker here at Yankee Stadium; not actively going around searching for him, but anticipating running into him. A Dominican man, probably in his late-fifties or early-sixties with a short beard as white as Santa’s, I’d generally see him early in the mornings when I’m walking into our office, although at times he’s already finished his tasks before we get in. Although his English was less than fluent but very understandable, he’d always make sure to say hello or get my attention whenever I’d see him inside the stadium away from our area.
I found out yesterday that I hadn’t seen him because he’s been deported by ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement) and sent back to his native Dominican Republic under the ramped up orders by President Trump. Baron has lived here in New York for decades, making an honest living—emptying trash bins, cleaning desk tops, wiping of giant, 20-foot Yankees posters in the Great Hall, etc. It’s his home, and all he’s known for decades. Through the work grapevine, I heard he was sent back because he “didn’t take care of something 20 years ago”. He was at work one day, until he wasn’t. I didn’t get a chance to say goodbye…no “good luck”…no, “I’m sorry”…just gone in a blink of an eye. And while I didn’t know him well at all, there’s a sense of disbelief, despite us seeing this type of event on the news frequently now. The news media, which I’ve been a part of before and will most likely be a part of again, tends to only show high profile cases of deportations. While watching a story of a Michigan doctor being deported, Jenn made a significant comment to me: “Why does the news only highlight these cases of people they think have important jobs?” (I know the answer.) “And why do they always think a person’s profession equals their value as a person and well as their character? Meaning, if they’re a doctor, then they must be a ‘good person’”? To most, Baron’s story isn’t that interesting. If I’m truthful with myself, I wouldn’t even pitch it in a morning news meeting because it wouldn’t make “great TV”. But he’s a person—a man with a life who didn’t bother anyone (as far as I witnessed), and one who has people that care about him. If I feel this way about most likely never seeing him again and not being able to wish him well (and I barely knew him), then how are his family, close friends and loved ones supposed to cope? *Please share this story as it’s an important one. Feel free to like the page if you want to read stories about the Dominican community not just here in NYC, but across the USA as well.*

Every weekend i used to visitgo to seepay a visitpay a quick visit this websiteweb sitesiteweb page, becauseasfor the reason that i wantwish for enjoyment, sinceasfor the reason that this this websiteweb sitesiteweb page conations reallyactuallyin facttrulygenuinely nicepleasantgoodfastidious funny stuffinformationdatamaterial too.

  12. Hello, i think that i saw you visited my weblog thus i came to “return the favor”.I’m attempting to find things to improve my website!I suppose its ok to use some of your ideas!!

  13. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  14. Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  15. Hiya, I am really glad I’ve found this info. Nowadays bloggers publish just about gossips and web and this is really frustrating. A good blog with exciting content, that’s what I need. Thank you for keeping this website, I’ll be visiting it. Do you do newsletters? Can’t find it.

  16. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  17. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  18. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  19. I must express my appreciation for your kindness supporting people that must have guidance on in this concept. Your special commitment to passing the solution all over was exceptionally valuable and has continuously encouraged individuals like me to reach their aims. Your entire valuable key points indicates a lot to me and substantially more to my office workers. Thanks a ton; from each one of us.

  20. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  21. Whats Happening i’m new to this, I stumbled upon this I’ve discovered It absolutely helpful and it has helped me out loads. I’m hoping to contribute & aid different customers like its helped me. Good job.

  22. I just want to mention I’m all new to blogs and certainly savored you’re web site. More than likely I’m want to bookmark your site . You surely have good writings. Appreciate it for sharing your web page.
