Currently, most of my writing is done for Yankees Magazine, a monthly print magazine published by the New York Yankees. Every year we publish eight print issues, which are sold to the millions of fans that come through Yankee Stadium each season. But many of my feature-length articles are posted online each month as well. Below are quick summaries and links for some of those stories. I hope you’ll give them a look!

Also! I’ve just recently started a podcast, which is posted online through MLB. I’ll link to episodes of that here as well.


It’s Episode 6 of the Yankees Magazine Podcast! In this episode I interviewed the real Megan Leavey who currently works for the Yankees but recently had part of her life turned into a feature film called Megan Leavey. Megan is a Marine veteran who worked for years to reunite with her bomb-sniffing dog, Rex, who saved her life and countless other while they were deployed together in Iraq. This episode also features a discussion about Aaron Judge and Ronald Torreyes, who are on the cover of the June issue of Yankees Magazine.


Check it out! I interviewed Neil Patrick Harris and turned it into a podcast!


Episode five of the Yankees Magazine Podcast dropped and in it we all talk about Jeter night, the Negro Leagues Museum, and Dellin Betances.


Sometimes you interview someone and the story you get is something you never expected. That’s what happened in the fourth episode of the Yankees Magazine Podcast, which also includes a discussion of Derek Jeter, and a great segment with the inside scoop on a story about pitcher Dellin Betances.


All manner of people walk through the gates at Yankee Stadium, including a whole host of celebrities. In the Yankees Magazine Podcast: Red Carpet Edition, I sit down with some of those famous faces and talk to them about their careers and what brings them to Yankee Stadium. In the first episode of that series, I spoke to WWE wrestler Big Cass.


In 2017, the Yankees introduced new social-gathering spaces and food options to the Stadium, and I tried them all. It was a labor of love, honestly. Check out the story here!


Another episode of the Yankees Magazine Podcast! In this one we take a deep dive into my colleague’s story about Jacoby Ellsbury and his Native American roots, then I interviewed one of the chefs who cook up some of the Yankee Stadium food that I wrote a feature story about for an upcoming issue of the magazine.


The second episode of the Yankees Magazine Podcast is live! In it we discussed the Commemorative Home Run Edition of the Magazine, I interviewed one of the senior producers at Yankee Stadium, and then discussed with my colleague the way he went about covering Babe Ruth.


My dad is an engineer and while I’ve never quite understood his work, I’ve always been fascinated by it. In this story about Yankees prospect Justus Sheffield, as a sort of homage to my dad, I mixed some rocket science with some baseball science.


Over the offseason, I taught myself how to produce a podcast — I bought equipment, learned Adobe Audition, booked and conducted interviews, set up recording space, scripted a couple segments, then recorded everything and edited it all together. It was a labor of love, and I’m proud of what we came up with. Here’s episode one, where me and my fellow editors talk about the 2017 Yearbook and April Issue of Yankees Magazine, I interview the Yankees Spanish language translator, and the editors talk about what we’re excited to cover this season.


This winter I sat down for a lengthy interview with the Yankees’ general manager, Brian Cashman for an in-depth interview about his job and the pressures working in New York. Here’s that story.


Baseball is a game that is constantly changing, which means that every team has to make moves if they want to keep up. Over the long winter months, the Yankees kept busy, bringing in some big names they hope will bring another championship back to the Bronx.


Last summer while traveling for work, I set up an interview with Chris Chambliss, Yankees legend who, in 1977, hit a pennant-clinching home run that sent the Yankees back to the World Series for the first time in 15 years. This is the story of that moment in his own words. 


Playing in the major leagues is hard enough when you know you have a position and a spot in the lineup. When both those things are up in the air, finding your way becomes even more of a challenge. Last season, Rob Refsnyder navigated that situation with grace, and maybe even made himself more valuable in the process.


In 1996, the Yankees started a dynasty. But without Jim Leyritz, it may never have been possible. My Q&A with him takes you through the whole season, and how one swing of his bat catapulted the Yankees into legend.


One of the key members of the Core Four, Andy Pettitte was just a kid when he pitched a masterpiece in the 1996 World Series. I talked to him about that season as a whole, and how he was able to bounce back from a disastrous effort in Game 1 to completely shut down the Braves in Game 5.


Charleston, South Carolina is one of the coolest towns in America. Tons of history, great food around every corner, oh, and a minor league baseball club that’s partially owned by comedy legend Bill Murray. Not only did I get to meet Murray during my trip to Charleston, his RiverDogs came up huge in a playoff game for the ages.


Life can change in an instant. Or, it can be a slow and gradual climb. For Chad Green, it’s been a bit of a mix. Get to know him a little bit better, I think you’ll like what you find.
