I would like to thank all of the
writers that have already joined
the staff of The Highlander for
their outstanding support on this
project. I am looking forward
to reading what they'll have
for us next and hope that
more of you will join them.

I started this eNewsletter with
one goal in mind; to give Yankees
fans an open forum for publishing
their thoughts on their favorite
team and share them with others.


Welcome to our debut edition!

Letter from the Editor
Michael Aubrecht Pinstripe Press

As Baseball-Fever's Message Boards continue to grow in volume and popularity, so has the fan base of true baseball die-hards that frequent them. Our little corner, the Yankees Message Board, features some of the best commentary and analysis that this site has to offer. In an effort to share even more opinions and information with true Yankee die-hards, we have decided to publish this monthly newsletter dedicated to baseball's most storied franchise.

Each issue will feature historical essays, player profiles, season commentary, fanclub info, merchandising classifieds, etc. with links to other related Yankees points of interest on this site or the web. All issues will be archived and posted on the Pinstripe Press website. A true e-fan mag, written BY the fans, FOR the fans. We are always looking for help, whatever you want to contribute, your words, and your ideas!
