Special Commemorative Old-Timers’ Day Cover
June 2, 2013 — For the first time, we will be publishing a commemorative Old-Timers’Day cover — as part of the June Issue of Yankees Magazine.
Old-Timers’ Day will take place this season on June 23. The game program that will be sold at Yankee Stadium that afternoon will be identical to the June Issue of Yankees Magazine with the exception of the cover. The special Old-Timers’ Day cover (see below) features a candid image that Yankees chief photographer Ariele Goldman Hecht snapped of Yogi Berra and Mariano during last year’s Old-Timers’ Day festivities.
Could there be anyone more fitting than the two guys who grace this commemorative cover? Berra and Rivera are two of the greatest baseball players of all-time. One of them has been a staple at Old-Timers’ Day for decades and the other is writing the final chapter in a one-in-a-million career.
