May Issue of Yankees Magazine – ON SALE NOW
May 3, 2013 – The May Issue of Yankees Magazine will be on sale today at Yankee Stadium.
Of course, you can purchase a subscription to the print version of Yankees Magazine by visiting http://www.yankees.com/publications or by calling (800) GO-YANKS. The digital version of the magazine is available through http://www.yankees.com/publications.
The cover of the May Issue features not one, but two guys who are among the greatest pitchers to wear the pinstripes.
Last month, Yankees team photographer James Petrozzello took the exclusive photo below in the Yankees bullpen at the Stadium of Andy Pettitte and CC Sabathia.
For this special portrait, Pettitte and Sabathia stood in the middle of the bullpen, while Petrozzello shot the photo from a six-foot ladder. While the two Yankees greats make the photo, I believe that the bright green grass in the background certainly adds to its beauty.
Pettitte is third on the Yankees’ all-time regular-season wins list and is at the top of Major League Baseball’s all-time postseason wins chart. Sabathia earned a .718 winning percentage in his first four years in pinstripes, and he currently has the highest winning percentage among all Yankees pitchers in history. In addition to winning four games during the Yankees 2009 postseason run, Sabathia has already won 74 games with New York.
Managing editor Nathan Maciborski wrote the cover story on the two lefties. In the feature, Maciborski detailed their greatness on the field as well as their close friendship off the field.
The May Issue also includes my story on the Yankees first trip to West Point since 1976 (see blog entry below for more details) and my feature on Curtis Granderson, who is expected to return to the field soon.
For the story on Granderson, Petrozzello and I spent several days in Bermuda with the Yankees centerfielder over the winter (see blog entries below for more details). The story and the gorgeous photos, are as exclusive as anything you’ll see in a team publication.
