September Issue of Yankees Magazine — ON SALE, SEPTEMBER 4
By Alfred Santasiere III
September 2, 2015 — The September Issue of Yankees Magazine will be on sale this Friday, September 4 at Yankee Stadium and on newsstands in the Tri-State area.
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://yankees.com/publications.
The September edition has two covers. The cover that will be sold all month features a beautiful portrait of two of the most important members of the Yankees 2015 team, Andrew Miller and Dellin Betances. Chief photographer Ariele Goldman Hecht took the cover photo in center field earlier this season, and executive editor Ken Derry scribed a great story on the dominance of the two relief pitchers, who have owned the eighth and ninth innings this season.
The other September cover features an image of an emotion-filled Alex Rodriguez, seconds after his June 19 home run sailed into the right-field seats at Yankee Stadium, putting him in the 3,000 hits club.
That cover will be sold at Yankee Stadium on September 13. That afternoon, the Yankees will be celebrating Rodriguez’ 3,000th hit accomplishment in a special pregame ceremony. In addition to the special commemorative Alex Rodriguez cover, the September Issue will include a commemorative section on №13.
After sitting down with A-Rod for an exclusive interview in August, I penned one of the features in the section. My story details Rodriguez’ impressive comeback in 2015 and includes his candid words on several topics surrounding his success (see blog entry below).
The section also includes senior editor Jon Schwartz’ recap of 13 of A-Rod’s most magical hits prior to №3,000.
There’s a lot more in the September Issue, including three special Q&A features. Earlier this summer, I sat down with Hall of Famer Joe Torre and New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin for a feature that any fan of sports in the Big Apple will enjoy (see blog entry below). And, last fall, I interviewed Hall of Fame quarterbacks Terry Bradshaw and Warren Moon for two special Art of Sport pieces, which are also in the September Issue.
Enjoy this issue.
