A die-hard Yankee fan who, just entering high school, has aspirations of becoming a baseball journalist or broadcaster. He watched the Yanks win the 2009 World Series in person, and essentially lives and breathes baseball.
I’ve been a Yankee fan since I was 5 years old. My grandfather got me a subscription to The Sporting News when I was 7 years old so he could read his in peace without me asking if he was done with it yet! There’s nothing I love more than baseball.
CIA trained chef of 17 years and blue and blood Yankee fan that grew up watching Donnie Baseball leave his heart and soul on the field. I love keeping track of the kids that could one day wear the *real* Pinstripes and tip their caps during roll call.

Dan’s grandfather snuck into Yankee games as a boy and his father grew up six blocks from the Stadium, so being a Yankees fan was more a birthright than a choice. As a 5th-grader he was hooked by the 1996 Yankees, a love affair that would only increase with age. He was born and raised on the North Shore of Long Island and still resides there, teaching middle school English and coaching junior high basketball.
Has been a Yankees fan for as long as he can remember, growing up in a family of huge fans. His knowledge of the game comes from watching baseball his whole life and playing 3B in college. He specifically loves to write about players the Yankees may want to target and analyze player performance using advanced statistics.
