New Highlander 2.0
LETTER FROM THE EDITOR
Email: Michael Aubrecht Website: Pinstripe Press

FIRST, I want to thank every one of you - the writers, the artists, the photographers AND the readers for making the first year of The Highlander a complete success! I initially started this online newsletter to provide a free online forum for fans to share their talents with other baseball die-hards. However, since January 2003, it has taken on a life of it's own while featuring the best in both professional and amateur baseball commentary. This issue marks the beginning of our second year and we are debuting a new streamlined look and logo to commemorate the event. We hope that you will find our new simplified layout easier to navigate and print. Future issues in 2004 will include more of our popular themes, new writers, and more exclusive photos and cartoons. We have also added the opportunity to showcase your children's baseball-related book reports (see Nolan Ryan). Over the past 12 months, we have grown into one of the most popular independent baseball publications on the Internet and I can't wait to see how far we will go in 2004. Stay tuned!

P.S. Let us know what you think of the redesign and what you would like to see this year.

Miller Huggins
PLAYER PROFILE
Source: Baseball Hall Of Fame Bio
Born: March 27, 1879, Cincinnati, Ohio - Died: September 25, 1929, New York, NY
Managed: St. Louis Cardinals and New York Yankees

IT WAS during a 13-year big league career as a second baseman that Miller Huggins developed the leadership qualities that served him well in becoming one of the game's top managers. The 5-foot-6-inch Huggins, known as "The Mighty Mite," started out as a player-manager with the Cardinals before eventually heading to the Yankees. He led New York to six pennants and three World Series titles, and his 1927 "Murderers' Row" club is considered one of baseball's greatest teams.

Did you know... that prior to his managerial career, Miller Huggins received a law degree from the University of Cincinnati, and later passed the Ohio bar exams?

Fast Facts
YANKEES HISTORY 101
Source: Official Yankees Website

THE YANKEES utilized numerous cap designs including pinstripes from 1903 until 1922 when they finally settled on a solid navy cap with the interlocking "NY" insignia. In 1917, the Yankees removed the "NY" monogram from the jersey and went with a plain, pinstripes-only look. The "NY" remained off the uniform except for the cap for the next 20 years until it was reinstated in 1936. The legendary Babe Ruth, therefore, actually played his entire Yankee career without ever wearing the club's now-legendary insignia on his jersey.
