People love the Yankees Media Guide. I’ve given a few to friends and they invariably call me a few days later and say how much they enjoyed it.
Here is your chance to own one. The media relations department is selling the guide to fans. It’s 488 pages of history, biographies of every player in the organization and all the records you could want. There are photos galore and plenty of statistical nuggets. You’ll never get tired of looking at it. It is the definitive written history of the club. The beat writers carry it with us everywhere we go.
Here’s the best part: It’s only $20 at the Stadium, on line or over the phone.
If you’re a collector, you can get the same spiral-bound version given to the beat writers and broadcasters. That’s $85. They’re available only on-line or over the telephone. Only 750 are printed and quantities are limited.
You also can get the 2008 media guide ($35.00) and the 2008 year-in-review guide ($15.00).
Here’s how to order:
By telephone: 1-800-GO-YANKS (800-469-2657).
The web: newyork.yankees.mlb.com/nyy/fan_forum/publications.jsp
Or pick it up at the Stadium via vendors or at the team stores.
Thanks to the graciousness of the Yankees, we have three media guides to give away. The first three people to e-mail me with the correct answers to all three of these questions culled from the media guide will win.
Here you go:
Question 1: Who is the team’s consulting internist?
Question 2: Which member of the organization has a son playing Pac-10 football?
Question 3: In May of 2003, what newspaper named Eric Duncan its High School Player of the Week?
Update: easier questions below.
First three correct answers win. E-MAILS ONLY! The Yankees will mail you the guide.
We’ll have more of these contests down the road.
(Note, no comments are being allowed on this post until the winners are named)
UPDATE, 2:23 p.m.: Wow, I guess I made this too difficult to you. No winners yet.
OK, we’ll revise the questions somewhat …
Question 1: What medical school did Dr. Chris Ahmad attend?
Question 2: Which member of the major-league coaching staff has a son playing Pac-10 football?
Question 3: In May of 2003, what newspaper named Eric Duncan its High School Player of the Week? (Hint, it’s not in New Jersey)
UPDATE, 2:44 p.m.: WE HAVE WINNERS, no more entries. I like when I stump the readers. You want a media guide, you need to earn it. Or you can buy it, which you should. They’re great.
2. Mike Harkey, whose son Corey is a freshman TE at UCLA
3. USA Today.
Congrats to Donnie, Kevin and Bryan, who were the winners. We’ll do this again sometime.
