Yankees mag celebrates women in baseball

Finally, the New York Yankees are giving a nice present to their female fans.

The Yankees are celebrating women in baseball by dedicating the latest issue of Yankees magazine to women. The magazine aims to appeal to female baseball fans with profiles of the Yankees wives and their charity efforts as well as female sports stars such as Jennie Finch and Mia Hamm and legendary tennis player Billie Jean King.

But I'm most looking forward to reading the story highlighting the Steinbrenner women: Jessica and Jennifer, the too-often overlooked daughters of late owner George Steinbrenner. Just because brothers Hal and Hank Steinbrenner are the ones most responsible for the day-to-day operations, doesn't mean that Jennifer and Jessica shouldn't get their chance to shine.

It's almost as if someone in Yankee land finally took a look at their stadium one night and noticed all the women in the crowd. It's nice that there has at last been some recognition of the fact that female fans make up a large portion of the Yankees fan base.

Personally, I can’t wait to read the issue. I'm planning to attend one of the baseball games this weekend and will pick up a copy and review it for you.
