July Issue of Yankees Magazine – ON SALE, JUNE 30
June 29, 2014 – The July Issue of Yankees Magazine will be on sale this Monday, June 30 at Yankee Stadium. 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 visiting http://www.yankees.com/publications.
Dellin Betances, who has a 1.39 ERA in 45 innings of work (as of June 29), graces the cover. Executive editor Ken Derry’s story will take you inside the life of the shy New York native, and it’s a great read.
This July marks the 100th anniversary of Babe Ruth’s major league debut, and this issue includes my feature on The Babe’s favorite hideouts in and around New York (see blog entry below) and the accompanying Q&A with one of the Bambino’s greatest fans, David Wells (see blog entry below).
July also marks the 75th anniversary of Lou Gehrig’s farewell address. In recognition of that anniversary, managing editor Nathan Maciborski wrote a wonderful feature on the “Luckiest Man” speech at Yankee Stadium for this issue.
Ruth and Gehrig are not the only Yankees legends on the pages of the July Issue. The Yankees recently held their 68th annual Old-Timers’ Day at the Stadium, and our photographers put together a magical collection of images for a photo essay.
This was an especially meaningful Old-Timers’ Day because the Yankees dedicated a plaque to Hall of Famer Goose Gossage during the festivities. I spent some with Gossage prior to his big day and in the moments after the plaque was unveiled for a Q&A piece that follows the Old-Timers’ Day photo essay (see blog entry below).
Lastly, if you’re a football fan, don’t miss my “5 Minutes with…” interviews with New York Giants legends Bill Parcells and Phil Simms (see blog entries below).
Enjoy this edition of Yankees Magazine.
