Yankees Magazine: Taillon's Return to Work

After nearly two years away, Yankees right-hander is showing that he’s back in business
May 7, 2021

For millions of Americans who were fortunate enough to remain gainfully employed throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, working from home became the new normal. Commutes and water-cooler chit-chat were replaced by Zoom meetings and casual everydays. As vaccinations were rolled out at breakneck speed this year, there was much talk about

Yankees Magazine: Opening the Perfect Present

For the thousands of fans who made their way back to Yankee Stadium on Opening Day, it was the small details that meant the most
April 28, 2021

This is a happy story, but not one with a happy ending, so let’s dispense with that at the beginning. Everything you’re about to read is about a game that the Yankees will lose, 3-2, with the winning (or rather, losing) run scoring on a play that couldn’t help but

Yankees Magazine: DJ’s Sweet Rhythm

In DJ LeMahieu, the Yankees have found a player whose unending quest for greatness matches their own
April 23, 2021

The crowd noise at Houston’s Minute Maid Park was deafening the entire night, but now it had reached another level. DJ LeMahieu -- coming off an explosive first season with the Yankees in which he swatted a career-high 26 homers and drove in a career-best 102 runs -- stepped into

Yankees Magazine: Call to Action

Giancarlo Stanton regularly launches balls into orbit, but it’s when the quiet superstar speaks from the heart that he makes the biggest impact
April 14, 2021

There are times to talk about process, and there are times to talk about outcomes, and the latter certainly rules the day when it comes to the postseason. But an unhappy ending doesn’t erase the positives. You can fill a book with the Yankees’ bright and shiny moments from last

Yankees Magazine: Aaron stood tall in House That Ruth Built

April 8, 2021

When Hank Aaron passed away at the age of 86 earlier this year, I was saddened by the news but also compelled to share a few experiences I had with the man who broke Babe Ruth’s record of 714 homers in the face of horrible racism, the man who still

Yankees Magazine: Pure in heart

April 1, 2021

When you pour your entire soul into something the way Yankees manager Aaron Boone does, good things tend to happen. Every year, it seems, there’s a “biggest surprise” of Spring Training; some rookie who opens eyes, or some rehabbing veteran out to prove his playing days aren’t over yet. This

Bombs Away!

With their big boppers leading the charge, the Yankees take aim at a 28th title
March 31, 2021

When Brett Gardner looks around the Yankees clubhouse, he sees towering home run hitters in every direction. To one side, there’s 6-foot-6, 245-pound Giancarlo Stanton, with the physique of an NFL tight end. To the other, there’s 6-foot-7, 282-pound Aaron Judge, one of the most imposing specimens ever to play

Unflappable

On the field and off, Whitey Ford was a portrait of confidence and success
March 22, 2021

A few days after Whitey Ford passed away last October, his life was celebrated at Saint Mary’s Roman Catholic Church in Manhasset, Long Island, not far from the town of Lake Success, N.Y., where the Hall of Fame pitcher had lived for more than six decades. Ford’s former teammate and

The Yankees’ Clippers: Higgy's 3-HR night

A haircut from a fellow catcher was all Higashioka needed to make history
March 15, 2021

Radley Haddad might want to sharpen his shears. The former Yankees farmhand and current bullpen catcher has a wealth of knowledge and expertise about the tools of ignorance, but his barber skills, for one Yankees player at least, are a secret weapon of sorts. Catcher Kyle Higashioka hadn’t gotten off

Heart and Soul

Luke Voit has always played with passion. He loves that he now gets to do it in New York
March 8, 2021

The shortened 2020 season will be remembered for a lot of things, good and bad. But one of the most enduring performances among Yankees players was that of Luke Voit. In just 56 regular-season games, the Missouri native launched 22 home runs, becoming the seventh Yankees player to lead the

Patience, Poise and Pinstripes

Driven by a maturity and curiosity well beyond his 21 years, Deivi García has earned every opportunity
March 4, 2021

Spring Training is always magical, as optimism overflows on the backfields in Tampa, Fla. Possibility is a salvation. Hope is a drug. Especially after the past year. Looking back, the thing about 2020 is the thing about baseball: Even on those rare occasions when it was almost normal, it still

Yanks' fire 'still burning until we win it'

With a burning desire to end their World Series drought, the Yankees lit the hot stove this winter
February 28, 2021

Like everyone who cares deeply about the Yankees, Luke Voit wanted the team to do one thing above all else this past offseason: re-sign DJ LeMahieu. Unlike the fan base, which relied on social media to voice that same wish, Voit had a direct pipeline to the three-time All-Star. And

Running in the Shadow of The Babe

A guide to the marathons and other races along the route of Babe Ruth’s legendary life
October 30, 2020

Babe Ruth and running don’t seem to go together very well. While The Babe is regarded as one of the greatest athletes of all time, his commitment to physical fitness clearly paled in comparison to his love for food and beer. And with his power at the plate, it’s not

Yankees Magazine: Baby Steps

Little by little, a most bizarre baseball season developed into something special
October 7, 2020

This is the third feature in a series looking at the complexities inherent in the 2020 baseball season. If you missed Parts 1 and 2, please visit www.yankees.com/magazine. The metaphor might at first seem strange, but stick with it. The best comp for the 2020 baseball season -- 60 games

Yankees Magazine: Real One

They call him ‘The Machine,’ but DJ LeMahieu has a ton of heart
September 24, 2020

On a chilly February morning in Tampa, Fla., Yankees infielder DJ LeMahieu stood on the top step of an empty dugout at George M. Steinbrenner Field and pondered the upcoming 2020 season. The three-time All-Star paused for a moment and thought about his first year in New York, when the

Yankees Magazine: Looking Back, Looking Forward

On the 40th anniversary of Yankees Magazine, its editors recall highlights and share their hopes for the future of the Yankees’ flagship publication
September 10, 2020

On May 13, 1980, Yankees catcher Rick Cerone appeared on the cover of Yankees Magazine alongside the headline “Big Shoes To Fill.” And while that certainly may have been true for Thurman Munson’s successor, there was no precedent whatsoever for the publication itself. The 28-page premiere edition of Yankees Magazine

Yankees Magazine: Anything But Ordinary

Hitting a round ball with a round bat is said to be the hardest feat in sports. But it’s nothing compared to all that goes into making baseball in 2020 seem normal
September 3, 2020

This is the second feature in a series looking at the complexities inherent in the 2020 baseball season. For Part 1, see “A New Path Forward” in the August 2020 issue of Yankees Magazine.

Yankees Magazine: All You Need Is Love

Hank Steinbrenner eschewed the limelight for something far more meaningful
August 19, 2020

He was born with an unquenchable thirst for knowledge, into a family with an insatiable desire to win. With those two forces forging the steel rails on which his life tracked, Hank Steinbrenner never stopped pursuing his passions, with impressive accomplishments in several different arenas to show for it. But

Yankees Magazine: Ready for Liftoff

Fans expect Jasson Dominguez to rocket toward the big leagues, but ‘The Martian’ has a long journey ahead of him
August 11, 2020

It would be poetic, but also unfortunately something of a lie, to say that the first thing you notice about Jasson Dominguez is the line of braces across his toothy grin. Your eyes actually go to his shoulders, somehow wider and broader every time you blink. Then to his biceps,

Yankees Magazine: A new path forward

It has been a year to forget, but 2020 could offer Yankees fans reason to celebrate
July 23, 2020

If there’s one thing that we can all agree on -- a tall order these days -- it’s that 2020 has been the year that the metaphors died. Hyperbole became reality. Worst-case scenarios turned ordinary. So when Yankees manager Aaron Boone said that one of the things he enjoyed most

Yankees Magazine: From Every Angle

Wide-ranging photos from the last decade highlight the all-encompassing breadth of Yankees Magazine
May 14, 2020

George Steinbrenner was spot-on when he said owning the Yankees is like owning the Mona Lisa. There simply is no other franchise that can match the success, the history and the cultural significance of the New York Yankees. As such, a team like the Yankees demands much from its employees,
