Spring Issue of Yankees Magazine – ON SALE NOW
February 26, 2014 – The Spring Issue of Yankees Magazine is on sale now. You can purchase a subscription to the print version of Yankees Magazine by calling (800) GO-YANKS, and you can purchase a print or digital subscription by logging on to http://www.yankees.com/publications.
Yankees Magazine is also sold at Yankee Stadium and on newsstands throughout the tri-state area.
The Spring Issue, which is the first edition of the year, features an environmental portrait of one of the Yankees prized offseason acquisitions on the cover. In a photo shoot with Brian McCann in the batting cage at Yankee Stadium, Yankees chief photographer Ariele Goldman Hecht captured a photograph of the seven-time All-Star catcher behind the plate. In the unique photo, which was taken on the day McCann was introduced to the New York media, the catcher is wearing a suit and tie — and a catcher’s mitt (see cover below).
Managing editor Nathan Maciborski’s story on McCann is as compelling as the cover photo. It includes several exclusive quotes from McCann, in which the star backstop shares his excitement about joining the Yankees.
The Spring Issue also includes my feature on long-time Yankees pitching guru Billy Connors (see blog entry below), my “5 Minutes with…” interview with Julius Erving (see blog entry below) and a very special story on the Yankees history in New Orleans, which was scribed by executive editor Ken Derry.
Additionally, the Spring Issue contains a feature by contributing writer Bob Klapisch on all of the Yankees’ offseason acquisitions. Of course, those acquisitions include McCann, along with All-Star outfielders Jacoby Ellsbury and Carlos Beltran, and one of Japan’s greatest stars, pitcher Masahiro Tanaka.
In my opinion, we’ve started 2014 with a fascinating issue of Yankees Magazine, so don’t wait to get your subscription!
