"Rick Cerrone holds the unbeatable record for longevity in the toughest media job in sports: 11 years as the PR Director of George Steinbrenner's Yankees. Between that and his extensive experience as a radio host and print writer and editor, nobody can better captivate an audience on the intricate dance between the players, the owners, the fans and the media. He still manages to surprise, entertain and inform me every time we speak -- and I've known him since 1973!"

"My longtime friend Rick Cerrone can spin baseball tales with the best of them, but hearing him make a motivational speech was a revelation! Rick held a room full of people in rapt attention and left them inspired to use their ‘gifts' to improve the lives of others.

He sets the standard!"
- SCOTT FERRALL, THE SCOTT FERRALL SHOW, SIRIUS XM RADIO
"On June 19, 2009, the First Annual Fathers and Sons Day was held at Madison Square Garden. One of the keynote speakers was Rick Cerrone. Mr. Cerrone gave an inspiring talk on the importance of not just setting goals, but also having a plan so that you can truly accomplish what you've set out to do. Mr. Cerrone's words were well received by our group and inspired many of our fathers and sons to become more aware of their God-given gifts and talents. Mr. Cerrone is one of the kindest and giving people I know. We thank him for enriching the lives of those he meets."
- CLYDE R. DAVIS, CO-FOUNDER, FATHERS AND SONS
