Rick Bay began his career in sports as a dual sport athlete at Michigan on the football and wrestling teams. In 1963, Bay was an All-American and Big Ten champion at 157 pounds for the Wolverines and the Big Ten's most outstanding wrestler.

He would later coach the Wolverines on the mat from 1970-74, going undefeated in dual meets and finishing third and second in the country in his final two seasons.

But his time in Ann Arbormerely was a prelude to a long career in sports which includes stints as the athletic director at Ohio State, president of the Cleveland Indians and Chief Operating Officer for the New York Yankees.

Bay talks about his experiences in the world of major college and professional sports in his newly released memoir "From Buckeyes to the Bronx."

The spelling error from the photo caption has been corrected, thank you for pointing it out. As for the photo, I'm not sure if you're implying that HIPAA was violated by taking and distributing this photo, but this was passed on through the public relations department of the hospital who receives permission from patients before taking and distributing such photos.
