Stadium’s concessionaire honored
Hall of Fame outfielder Dave Winfield was at Yankee Stadium Sunday as part of a pregame ceremony in which the American Academy of Hospitality Services honored the Yankees’ concessionaire, Legends Hospitality.
The academy is an establishment of reviewers specializing in rating hotels, resorts, spas, airlines, cruise lines, automobiles, products, restaurants and chefs. It is best known for its reviews of hotels, resorts and travel industries. The academy began in 1949 as a restaurant rating bureau. The current establishment, which dates to 1989, is an offspring of the early group and is most known for its International Star Diamond Award that was bestowed on Legends Hospitality Sunday for “First Class Accommodations, Amenities, Five Star Dining, Comfort, Convenience and Service Excellence.”
Winfield and Joseph Cinque, chief executive officer of the American Academy of Hospitality Sciences, presented the International Diamond Award to Yankees vice president of Stadium operations Doug Behar and Yankees senior vice president of strategic ventures and Legends Hospitality chief customer officer Marty Greenspun.
