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, and that extends beyond the players on the field. From the grounds crew to the general manager, expectations are the same as they are in the clubhouse: to be the best in baseball. And for the editors of Yankees Magazine, that means challenging ourselves to provide readers with riveting content about their team that they won’t find anywhere else.
Inside each issue of Yankees Magazine are stories and photos that reflect that commitment. Over the last decade, since celebrating our 30th anniversary, we’ve raised the bar higher than ever, giving readers an all-access pass to what goes on behind the scenes and away from the spotlight. We have traveled far and wide to document players’ lives beyond the ballfield. We’ve been invited into the inner sanctums of the Yankees’ biggest stars, coming back with incredible -- and incredibly unique -- stories. And when those iconic moments occur as only they can at Yankee Stadium, we’re able to offer you a perspective like no one else can.
In the photos below, you’ll get a sense of what we mean. If you have been a subscriber, you’ll certainly recognize some of these images and be reminded of the stories they accompanied.
