Posts Tagged ‘Alfred Santasiere III’

On August 3rd, the New York Yankees posed for their annual team photo. One thing was missing though. It was Alex Rodriguez. Apparently, he didn’t get the memo. The Yankees director of publications, Alfred Santasiere III, stepped in for Alex at the last-minute and the photo was taken. If you look at the photo below, you will see a man in a suit standing next to Joba Chamberlain (that’s Al Santasiere). When the photo is released to the public, that will be Alex Rodriguez.

Well, all of the players except for Alex Rodriguez — who I had to step in for at the last minute (as you see in the photo below). I’m standing next to Joba Chamberlain, who yelled out, “Al is filling in for Al. Everything is going to be alright!”
Anyway, I will let you in on the worst kept secret in team photo history. When you see the photo in one of the next issues of Yankees Magazine (either September or October) — you’ll see A-Rod in the shot, and it will look like he was really there. 
The men and women of Grandstand Design — the New Jersey firm that designs Yankees Magazine — are very talented. If you don’t believe me, check out A-Rod in the 2010 team photo. 
You guys should really check out Al’s blog (Homestand Blog by Yankees Magazine), which gives you a preview of what will be included in future Yankees publications. He does a great job.
