Catcher, World Series participant, Founder of the Newark Bears minor league ball club.
Introducing our officially licensed Rick Cerone candle!
Rick Cerone is a former Major League Baseball catcher (predominantly) who played with a host of teams throughout his 18 year career including the Cleveland Indians, Toronto Blue Jays, New York Yankees, and Boston Red Sox, among others. He was part of the New York Yankees roster who made an appearance in the 1981 World Series. He was known to stand up to George Steinbrenner (New York Yankees’ owner) on more than one occasion! New York Yankees announcer Phil Rizzuto nicknamed Mr. Cerone the “Italian Stallion” due to his Italian heritage and off the field endeavors such as being endorsed by “10” jeans. Rick also has a charitable heart having raised money for victims of the 1980 Italian Earthquake.
We developed several samples for Rick, based on his scent preferences, and in the end he chose the rustic and earthy scent of sage for his Saggio candle. While ‘saggio’ is known as the Italian translation for ‘sage’, as in ‘wise man’, we chose to use it for both its literal translation as well as being a ‘sage’ scent. For Shining Sol, and our experience with Rick, the meaning works both ways!
