2013 New York Yankees Official Yearbook – ON SALE, APRIL 1
March 18, 2013 — The 2013 New York Yankees Official Yearbook will be on sale at Yankee Stadium on April 1 — Opening Day.
You can purchase the print version of the Yearbook by visiting http://www.yankees.com/publications or by calling (800) GO-YANKS. The digital version of the Yearbook is available through http://www.yankees.com/publications.
The 2013 Yearbook features a cover that captures the beauty of the Yankee Stadium (see below). It includes images of the field as well as of the frieze and the Gate 4 entrance, which has become one of the most recognizable places in or around the Stadium. Before the design of the cover was finalized, it was given a throwback copper green look. In my opinion, the color of the cover stands out, and it will make the 320-page publication a keepsake for years to come.
In addition to biographies about all of the Yankees, along with the 2013 season preview feature and the 2012 season in review story, the Yearbook includes a special 31-page section on the final outs of each of the World Series won by the Yankees. For this expansive piece, senior editor Nathan Maciborski — who came up with the idea last summer — spoke to more than half of the men who recorded the 27th out in the deciding games of Fall Classics for the Yankees.
The Yearbook also features three important anniversary pieces. The first is on the 100th anniversary of the 1913 season, which is when the team began to be commonly referred to as the Yankees. The second anniversary story is on the 1923 season, which is when the club moved into the old Yankee Stadium and won its first of 27 world championships. The third story is about the late George Steinbrenner’s 1973 purchase of the Yankees.
Finally, as I discussed in a recent blog post, my exclusive feature story on Ichiro will be published in the 2013 Yearbook, and it provides great insight on number 31.
Enjoy this special publication.
