2015 Edition of Yankees Magazine en Español — ON SALE, SEPTEMBER 4
By Alfred Santasiere III
September 2, 2015 — The 2015 Edition of Yankees Magazine en Español will be on sale this Friday, September 4 at Yankee Stadium and on newsstands in the Tri-State area.
This publication is the fourth annual edition of Yankees Magazine en Español, and in my opinion, it’s gotten better each year.
For the first time in the four-year history of the publication, we have produced two covers. Since the Yankees retired the numbers of Bernie Williams and Jorge Posada and dedicated Monument Park plaques to both of them in 2015, we decided to further honor the Puerto Rico born legends. Half of the magazines feature a portrait of Williams on the cover and the other half feature a portrait of Posada.
Within the pages of this publication, you’ll find two features on Posada. In January, I caught up with the former catcher in Miami, and captured his words about his entire professional career (see blog entry below). And during the summer, I spent a day with Posada in Puerto Rico for an exclusive look at his childhood.
I was also in Puerto Rico in 2014 with Williams, and in addition to the story that we published that last year on his upbringing, I spoke with the centerfielder about his career in pinstripes for a feature that is included in the 2015 edition of Yankees Magazine en Español.
Senior editor Jon Schwartz traveled to Puerto Rico last winter and spent some time with Carlos Beltran for an exclusive story on the Yankees rightfielder. Schwartz’ feature, along with team photographer James Petrozzello’s images from that trip are among the best we’ve published in a long time.
Around the same time that Schwartz was in Puerto Rico, executive editor Ken Derry traveled to the Dominican Republic to cover the Latino Baseball Hall of Fame festivities and to explore the baseball culture there. Don’t miss Derry’s story in this special publication.
Lastly, as I described on this blog, I have had the opportunity to conduct two exclusive interviews with Alex Rodriguez over the summer. My Q&A feature with A-Rod, which was originally published in the August Issue of Yankees Magazine, can also be found in Yankees Magazine en Español. In English and in Spanish, it offers a unique look at the game’s most compelling player in 2015.
Enjoy this annual publication.
