2017 New York Yankees Official Yearbook — ON SALE NOW
April 10, 2017 — The 2017 New York Yankees Official Yearbook is on sale today at Yankee Stadium.
If you are not going to be at the Stadium for this afternoon’s Opening Day game and festivities, you can purchase a copy of the Yearbook at any time during the 2017 season at Yankee Stadium, at www.yankees/publications or by calling (800) GO-YANKS. The Yearbook is also available at retailers in and around New York City.
This season’s edition of the annual publication is one that I will long be proud of. The cover features a photo of Yankee Stadium, taken outside of Gate 6. To make the image pop off the page, we added a UV gloss to the Stadium’s exterior. We also matched the gold color of the façade on the book’s title with a gold foil — which is literally infused with tiny gold particles.
The inside of the book is every bit as special as it’s cover. As I wrote about in previous blog entries this winter, my feature on star catcher Gary Sanchez and the story that I wrote about Didi Gregorius, centering on his upbringing in Curaçao, are a big part of this publication.
A little closer to home, associate editor Hilary Giorgi scripted a feature on all of the Yankees new arrivals, and that story includes some unique photos of DH Matt Holliday from the day he first came to Yankee Stadium in December.
As the case has been in previous seasons, the Yearbook includes a long section, and the theme this year belongs to the organization’s impressive group of young stars and prospects. Among the stories in the section are executive editor Nathan Maciborski’s feature on the players who emerged from the minors last season to make an impact in New York, namely Sanchez, Aaron Judge and Tyler Austin. Also in this section, you’ll find deputy editor Jon Schwartz’ story on the Yankees prospects who played in the Arizona Fall League in 2016 as well as his feature on the organization’s top prospect, infielder Gleyber Torres and my aforementioned piece on Sanchez.
Of course, there’s plenty more editorial and imagery that make up this 260-page publication, including bios on more than 40 players and a detailed season-preview.
Whether you are adding this year’s yearbook to your collection or simply looking to pick up a piece of Yankees history, grab your copy.
