July Issue of Yankees Magazine – ON SALE, JULY 5

July 1, 2013 – The July Issue of Yankees Magazine will be on sale Friday July 5 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.

Hiroki Kuroda, who is one of the most underrated and consistent pitchers in the game, graces the cover (below) of the edition. Contributing writer Mark Feinsand scribed the story about Kuroda, who signed with the Yankees prior to the 2012 season. In this insightful feature, Feinsand delves into the pitcher’s overall body of work since he came to New York, and I found one statistic to be especially revealing.

“In his first 44 starts in pinstripes, Kuroda pitched at least seven innings 25 times,” Feinsand wrote. “While his 10 outings of seven-plus shutout innings were the most of any pitcher in baseball since the beginning of 2012.”

Managing editor Nathan Maciborski wrote a feature story about another current-day Yankees star, Robinson Cano. In the story, Maciborski takes readers into the second baseman’s world. In an exclusive Yankees Magazine interview, Cano discussed his background in the Dominican Republic, his charitable endeavors, the success he had in the 2013 World Baseball Classic and his career thus far in pinstripes.

In my opinion, one of the elements that makes Maciborski’s story especially interesting is his description the interview. Maciborski writes about the humorous parts of his conversation with Cano and the serious anecdotes, as well as his reasoning for conducting the interview in Spanish.

As I discussed in a blog entry below, my feature in the July Issue is on a Yankees great, Hideki Matsui. I spent an afternoon with the former Yankees outfielder, during which time we ate lunch at a Japanese restaurant in New York City. After the lunch and interview, Yankees team photographer James Petrozzello snapped photos of Matsui in Yankee Stadium’s upper deck. One of those photos appears on the opening spread of the story. Another one of those images graces a special commemorative cover of the July Issue of Yankees Magazine (below). That cover will only be on sale at Yankee Stadium on July 28 — the day Matsui’s career will be celebrated in a pre-game ceremony. The story on Matsui will be included in both versions of the edition.

For the most exclusive and comprehensive story on Matsui’s career, as well as a ton of other compelling features and photos, be sure to pick up the July Issue of Yankees Magazine.

i like to make a couple of comments about last night’s game.First one question is why
did Girardi waited (again) until Tampa scored 6 runs to replace Sabatthia (I like to see
him pitch) but he can’t always be good, I could understand that when he is doing well
but not in last night’s game , specially when we have some good relievers .In today’s
game at a certain time about the 8th inning we had a ruuner at second base (can’t
remember who) the hitter hit a ground ball to third base of course the throw was to
first base in time for the out….I believe the runner at second could have advanced to
third if he had started whe he saw the throw was at first.Little things like this can make
the difference between winning or loosing. Unfortunately the plague of swinging at bad pitches and LOB seems to continue no matter who they play, Regardless of what
the outcome of this Season may be , I wish all of you guys the best of all.If any of you
Yankees players happens to read this “comments”please don’t get me wrong , I still
wish you all the best of all. Luis Cuervo , Miami .FL. luis-cuervo@att.net
