April Issue of Yankees Magazine – ON SALE, APRIL 1
March 18, 2013 – While it still feels like winter in the Northeast, Opening Day is only two weeks away. On April 1, the Yankees will begin their regular season at home against the Boston Red Sox.
The April Issue of Yankees Magazine will be on sale that afternoon, and it will include a special Opening Day cover (see below). Copies of the April edition — with the commemorative cover — will be available at Yankee Stadium on April 1. After that, we will unveil our regular April cover (see below), which features Derek Jeter and which will remain on sale through the end of the month.
Of course, you can purchase the print version of the April Issue — with either cover — by visiting http://www.yankees.com/publications or by calling (800) GO-YANKS. The digital version of the magazine — featuring the Jeter cover — will be available through http://www.yankees.com/publications.
The April Issue is a must have publication — for many reasons.
In the cover story, contributing writer Bob Klapisch details the Yankee captain’s journey back to the field after suffering the most serious injury of his career. On one of the first days of spring training, Klapisch spoke to Jeter about the intense rehabilitation he needed to go through after breaking his ankle in the 2012 American League Championship Series. The story also discusses Jeter’s expectations for the upcoming season.
The April edition includes plenty of other thought-provoking features including associate editor Craig Tapper’s story on Kevin Youkilis, managing editor Kristina Dodge’s feature on the passion that so many Yankees players and coaches have for golf and deputy editor Ken Derry’s recap of his recent visit to the Yankees training facility and the Latino Hall of Fame in the Dominican Republic.
As I detailed in previous blog entries, I wrote two features for the April Issue. My story about Jorge Posada’s adjustment to his post-baseball career as well as my feature on Dan Marino’s ceremonial first pitch in spring training will be published in April.
With the NCAA’s basketball tournament set to culminate in April, we chose this issue to publish “Five Minutes with…” interviews with two coaches who made their mark on the tournament. Over the winter, I sat down with Bob Knight and P.J. Carlesimo (who is currently the interim head coach of the Brooklyn Nets) for two interesting pieces.
Enjoy the beginning of the season and the April Issue.
