Letter from the Editor
Michael Aubrecht Pinstripe Press

First, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the readers and writers from January for making our debut edition of The Highlander a complete success. 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 you took it further than I ever expected. The day after announcing the first issues arrival, we started to receive positive emails from fellow webmasters, professional and semi-professional sports writers, published authors and even a true "Highlander" from Scotland. Some wanted to compliment our efforts, some wanted to join our staff and some simply wanted to thank us for giving them something new to read.

Here are some email excerpts: One word: FANTASTIC. Your newsletter is amazing, professional, informative, and better than most sites that have huge staffs working for them. It is a pleasure to visit the site. Best wishes for your new Newsletter. It looks great and has a lot of original insight. I enjoyed the articles and added the site to my Favorites list. I spent 59 minutes at your site today. Thanks. It was wonderful. The Highlander looks great. Congratulations to all involved!

Soxsuck.com
A Chronological History of Amazing Boston Red Sox Losses,
Remarkable Collapses and Other Record Breaking Feats

The Red Sox vs.Yankees rivalry is one of the longest running in all of professional sports. In defense of the Yankee Hater sites that have popped up all over the web, Soxsuck.com has put together a brilliant effort. Unlike it's piers that take a more immature approach with "doctored up" photos, animated urinating icons and opinionated trash talk, this site uses extensive factual research and presents it as a timeline of the Beantown franchise's history. The site was actually pointed out to me by a lifelong Boston die-hard who spent hours browsing the site and came away with the conclusion that there are too many strange occurrences and coincidences in the Red Sox history to overlook. Check it out today!


Everyfan.net has taken up the cause of the average NY sports fan who cannot access the Yankees on their cable system. For more information go to www.everyfan.net

Player Profile
#15 Thurman Munson

Born: June 7, 1947, Akron, Ohio
Died: August 2, 1979, Canton, Ohio (plane crash)

A baseball player, like any other person, is not immune to the tragedies of everyday life. On August 2, 1979, Thurman Munsonís twin-engine jet fell short of the runway during an attempted landing at the Akron-Canton airfield and tragically burst into flames. Munson was killed in the accident and two others were injured. The six-time All-Star was only 32 years old and had already established himself as one of the gameís premier catchers. In three consecutive World Series appearances in 1976, 1977, and 1978, Munson hit .529, .320 and .320 respectively. He started his career winning the American League Rookie of the Year award in 1970, batting .302, one of five seasons he hit over the .300 mark. In 1976, Munson led the Yankees into the World Series and earned Most Valuable Player honors in the AL. Source: Official Thurman Munson website
