Richard “Rick” Newman is owner of Pet Shop
Comics & Collectibles, located in Louisville, KY. Rick
has been an avid New York Yankees fan since 1968,
experiencing both the highs and lows of rooting for the
greatest professional sports team. Rick is a student of the
game of baseball, having played college baseball at
Campbellsville, KY in the early 1980’s. Rick’s brief college
batting average was .357 in limited playing time. Rick tried
out for the Seattle Mariners, (arranged through the Eddie
Kranepool Baseball School )before the 1981 season, hitting
.429 in intersquad games before his teflon hands and
tortoise-like speed made him realize that professional
baseball wasn’t in his future. Rick has played the game,
understands the game, and understands the hidden nuances of
the game. Rick follows the Yankees throughout the season,
viewing or listening to every game. Rick is married to
Jeannie, and has 3 daughters.
