• Brian Cashman’s Daughter Signs National Anthem @ Yankee Stadium

    Posted by on June 3rd, 2013 · Comments (11)

    It looks like singing the anthem down in Trenton earlier this year, for the Yankees Double-A club, was warm-up gig for 14-year old Grace Cashman. The daughter of Yankees G.M. Brian Cashman sang the National Anthem before this evening’s game at Yankee Stadium too.

    The Yankees broadcast on the YES Network made a semi-big deal out of her singing the anthem – as if getting the nod to sing was a major achievement.

    Can the girl sing? Sure…maybe…I dunno?

    But, isn’t it a tad of a joke to imply that she was given the chance to sing the anthem solely because of her talent?

    I mean…if little Susie Lipschitz-Doofenshmirtz of Mill Basin could sing the phone book and make it sound like Patsy Cline in your ear, would she get a shot to sing at Yankee Stadium if she wanted to…and raised her hand?  Doubt it.

      All that signing must have left her hands pretty tired, I imagine.

      Thanks folks! G’night!

      If I’m not mistaken, hasn’t one of the Steinbrenner children/grandchildren/nieces/whatever also sung at Yankee games?

      If so, what’s the big deal?

      It’s a big deal because this site has a hard time not concocting new and petty reasons to disparage Brian Cashman. Other than that, it’s not a big deal at all.

      Just wait until the team drafts little Teddy Cashman someday…

      Again, who cares? Do you know how many times a player has been drafted as a favor to a scout, GM, owner, friend, etc.?

      The Yankees drafted Chris Chambliss’s son Russell — I went to college with him so I knew his personally — in the 54th round of the 1997 draft. Why? Because he was the son of a former player and then-coach. Did Russ have a shot to play for the Yankees? Nope.

      BFD.

      Steve might want to check out the legacy drafting and career of one Marc Sullivan, lifetime .186 hitter with a negative career WAR.

      What community college did Russell Chambliss attend?
