May Issue of Yankees Magazine – ON-SALE NOW
May 3, 2012 – The May Issue of Yankees Magazine is on-sale now, and the content that makes up this edition is a unique blend of Yankees coverage.
From the cover story, in which deputy editor Ken Derry sheds light on Curtis Granderson’s character and goals, to the feature “Paint by Numbers” in which contributing writer Bryan Hoch discusses the baseball milestones that define careers, this edition covers all the bases.
This issue includes the first alumni section of the year. For the alumni feature, Yankees team photographer James Petrozzello and I spent a mid-winter day with former Yankees third baseman Scott Brosius in McMinnville, Oregon, which I wrote about on this blog a few months ago.
My feature on Brosius provides a detailed look at all that goes into being the head baseball coach at Linfield College, which is located about 40 miles from Portland and in one of the most beautiful areas of the United States.
Additionally, David Bernstein, the Yankees director of hospitality, premium sales and service, and group ticket representative Frank Costa recently announced their retirements. David and Frank worked for the Yankees for more than 20 years, and their kindness and professionalism resonated with everyone they crossed paths with at Yankee Stadium. You’ll find more on David and Frank’s significant contributions to the organization in this month’s Bomber Bites section.
Those are just a few of the many compelling stories in the May Issue of Yankees Magazine, so if you’re going to be at Yankee Stadium, pick up a copy. If you’re not planning a trip to the ballpark in May, you can subscribe to Yankees Magazine through (800) GO-YANKS or www.yankees.com/publications.
