August Issue of Yankees Magazine – ON SALE NOW
August 9, 2014 – The August Issue of Yankees Magazine is on sale now 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.
The August Issue features three covers. Joe Torre, who was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in July, graces the cover that will be on sale for most of the month. In that cover photo, taken by team photographer James Petrozzello in March, Torre is sitting in the middle of the Hall of Fame’s plaque gallery — a few feet in front of the wall that his plaque now hangs on.
Petrozzello also took a portrait of Paul O’Neill in Yankee Stadium’s Great Hall for the cover that will be sold at the Stadium only today, the day that the Yankees dedicated a Monument Park plaque to the great rightfielder.
The third cover features a portrait of Torre that staff photographer Matt Zeigler took in the home dugout at Yankee Stadium. That cover will be sold at Yankee Stadium on August 23, when the Yankees will be dedicating a Monument Park plaque to Torre and retiring his No. 6.
In addition to my cover story on Torre (see blog entry below), and my exclusive feature on Bernie Williams (see blog entry below), senior editor Jon Schwartz wrote an in-depth piece on O’Neill, and it is a must-read.
This issue also includes executive editor Ken Derry’s feature on the baseball in Trenton, New Jersey, the home of the Yankees Double-A affiliate. Derry’s feature provides an interesting history of the earliest days of baseball in New Jersey’s capital city, and it also sheds light on the experience of seeing the Thunder play today (which I can say from first-hand experience is wonderful).
Enjoy this edition of Yankees Magazine.
