A Ballantine Odontoblast!
In a way, Dr. William Strupp is a five time World Series champion. He has the rings to prove it.
He is the team dentist for the Yankees. It’s been that way since he fixed George Steinbrenner’s teeth in 1995. He wears the 2000 ring with most pride and is honored to get all five of his rings still while Steinbrenner was alive.
...More than 100 baseballs signed by players over the years, three baseball bats and a football signed by Heisman winners were among the items tucked in the back room in part of the office. It was a treasure trove of sports memorabilia that was stolen sometime between Nov. 16 and 17.
To get the sports memorabilia back would take a hail mary pass.
Because many of the items stolen would be difficult to pawn, detectives talked to Strupp about the possibility of posting an ad on Craigslist.
“It was an ingenious idea,” Strupp said.
Strupp set up a “stolen Yankees” ad Nov. 24. It contained several photos of the stolen items and an offer of a reward for their return.
“You kind of throw it out there and hope some idiot bites,” Strupp said.
