Yankees Universe Fan Club – Join Now!
February 27, 2011 – If you didn’t join the Yankees Universe
Fan Club in 2010, which was its first year of existence, don’t wait any longer.
Yankees Universe has been re-vamped and now includes four
levels of membership.† While the
merchandise that is offered varies from level to level, all Yankees Universe
members are privy to a members-only website with exclusive content.
That content includes feature-length stories that won’t even
be published in Yankees Magazine, a
season-long series of exclusive video interviews, which can’t be seen anywhere
else and a game-by-game blog by long-time New York baseball writer Jack
In the last week, I conducted several of those video
interviews with Yankees players and coaches. My conversation with Joe Girardi,
in which the manager spoke about his expectations for 2011 and the addition of
Rafael Soriano, among other topics, will be the first interview to go live on
Yankees Universe (and it will posted in the upcoming week).
I also sat down with Alex Rodriguez and Derek Jeter
(pictured below), along with top prospect Jesus Montero and centerfielder
Curtis Granderson, who spoke about his approach to his second season in
Spring Training is always a busy time, and this year has
been no different. The work-day starts early for players, coaches, writers and
front office personnel. But through these interviews, I feel that I captured
the pulse of the team and the atmosphere in and around George M. Steinbrenner
While you wait for the season to start, please call (800)

Universe – and once you join, please let me know what you think.
