Spring Issue of Yankees Magazine — ON SALE, FEBRUARY 21

February 14, 2017 — The Spring Issue of Yankees Magazine will be on sale on February 21. This first edition of 2017 will be available at Yankee Stadium and at retailers in and around New York City. You can sign up for a full-year subscription to Yankees Magazine at Yankees.com/publications and by calling (800) GO-YANKS.

We have certainly started the year with a great issue. CC Sabathia is the subject of my cover story (see blog entry below). There is also a feature by associate editor Hilary Giorgi on Yankees GM Brian Cashman, who she sat down with for an in-depth interview this winter. Giorgi’s exclusive feature details the ways Cashman has revamped the organization’s minor league system while also putting the major league squad in position to compete in 2017.

At around the same time Giorgi interviewed Cashman, executive editor Nathan Maciborski spent some time with Joe Girardi during the 2016 New Era Pinstripe Bowl — which was won by the manager’s alma mater, Northwestern University. Girardi was never too far from the Yankee Stadium field that afternoon, and Maciborski has chronicled it all for an interesting read.

This edition also includes a special story on former Yankees outfielder Tim Raines. Deputy editor Jon Schwartz traveled to Arizona to meet with the former Yankee, and soon after the trip, Raines was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame. The two met up again at a press conference in New York City, and Schwartz put together an insightful story on Rock’s 23-year major league career.

Enjoy the Spring Issue of Yankees Magazine.
