Letter from the Editor

I don't usually plug "big name"
products here at The Highlander as this eNewsletter
is more of a "blue-collar" forum for fellow fans to
market their own wares. However, as the 100th
Anniversary season of the New York Yankees comes to
a close, I'd like to recommend two very special
releases that are a must have for any Yankee
die-hard. The first is the "100th Anniversary Of
New York Yankees" on DVD which includes an in-depth
look at great moments in Yankees history and the
great heroes who brought them to life. This comes
as a 2-CD set with over 5 hours of
documentary-style specials and I actually sat
through 3 hours of it the first time I put it in.
The second is a beautifully designed book titled
"One Hundred Years - The Official Retrospective"
which is stuffed with over 256 pages of essays,
first-person accounts, and memories in the players'
own words. The book also offers over 175
photographs, (many from the Yankees archives) and
some that have never been publicly released before.
Both compliment each other perfectly and really
give you a sense of the magic and mystique that is
New York Yankees baseball. Both are available on
Bosux.com is a tribute to "The
Rivalry" with a unique emphasis on history,
sportsmanship and good taste. This site razzes the
Sox in a fresh way. It's an anti-team site that
lacks the obscene icons and blowhard trash talk.
Fans will enjoy the use of history and stats to
back up the totally-Yankee commentary that is
presented with a sense of respect for the
opposition. There is even a great tribute to "The

mutual respect. This website spotlight was
submitted weeks before the ALCS was determined and
is by no means a poke at loyal Sox fans.
"Mr.October" Reggie Jackson
Born: May 18, 1946, Wyncote,
Reggie Jackson earned the nickname
"Mr. October" for his World Series heroics with
both the A's and Yankees. In 27 Fall Classic games,
he amassed 10 home runs - including four in
consecutive at-bats -24 RBI and a .357 batting
average. As one of the game's premier power
hitters, he blasted 563 career round-trippers,
sixth on the all-time list. A terrific player in
the clutch and an intimidating clean-up hitter,
Jackson compiled a lifetime slugging percentage of
.490 and earned American League MVP honors in 1973.

Did you know... that Reggie
Jackson was the first player in major league
history to amass 100 or more home runs for three
different clubs: the A's, Yankees, and Angels?
