This morning, I still wasn’t over it. YES Network does a great job now of re-running the postgame in the morning in case you miss anything. I simply left it on mute. Almost isn’t good enough for Yankee fans. That passion, and those expectations, are what allow niche podcasts like this to even exist in the first place. I was at game 4 of the ALCS up…
 
I know… it’s been a minute. No time to explain the hiatus because we have A LOT to get to on this week’s podcast. Tony “Cousin Tony” Restaino joins us in New York for this week’s taping. He and I have a number of recently shared Yankee experiences, including a meet-and-greet with Mariano Rivera after he was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame o…
 
We bring you episode 30 with a special group of guests live from Cooperstown, New York. It’s a town as timeless as the game of baseball.

We’ll give you the do’s, the don’ts and the tips as we prepa…
 
So excited for the second-half of what is shaping up to be a special season in Yankees Universe. We return from the All-Star break by first letting you know where you can buy the now sold-out Yankees short-sleeve hoodie that the players and manager have been wearing as the temperatures warmed up. Then we move to our guest this week – it’s his first…
 
Well, this is a rather interesting episode. I spent the weekend (and the better part of Tuesday night/Wednesday) hosting social media content for Mohegan Sun, the awesome resort in Uncasville, Connecticut. On Saturday, Mohegan Sun opened “novelle,” a new supper club/hip spot to eat and drink. I hosted the live red carpet broadcast on the resort’s F…
 
We start off episode 27 by filling you in on where I’ve been (specifically, inside some parts of Yankee Stadium that previously I hadn’t seen), offering our prayers to David Ortiz for his recovery and talking about a few recent Yankee hats I’ve purchased/received. Then, it’s on to the main attraction on this week’s show: YES Network analyst Jack Cu…
 
Yankees Universe was a bit up-in-arms over recent light-hearted comments from TV host, comedian and Mets fan John Oliver during a recent Mets game on PIX11. We’ll run back those comments, plus explain Oliver’s recent history with the Yankees (and yours truly) in this episode. Also, I sold a ticket on the Gametime app for the first time this past we…
 
It’s been a fun week! I took a last-second trip to Baltimore on Monday to see the Yankees’ comeback win against the Orioles. Now, as we publish our new episode, we can celebrate a sweep heading in to the holiday weekend. The Yanks will play a 3-game series in Kansas City against the Royals. Of course I’ll recap the trip, but the big news on the pod…
 
Yours truly flying solo for episode 24 with a plethora of information in an abbreviated episode. I’ll tell you what it was like in the ballpark Monday for the rain delay/postponement of the game (and how I knew they weren’t playing), my new go-to bar on River Ave., why I bought from SeatGeek the other night and much more! Also – a quick chat about …
 
Any podcast that is taped in your favorite bar, interviewing the guy who owns the bar, while you’re drinking a pint from Bronx Brewery… is a good podcast! Our string of fantastic guests continues this week with Shaun Clancy. He’s originally from Ireland, and opened Foley’s (18 West 33rd Street, between 5th/6th) 15 years ago. It’s billed as “An Iris…

He currently serves as the Editor-In-Chief for the legendary publication Baseball Digest. Ed note: We taped this last week; the new edition that we sp…
 
Fair warning: this may be my favorite episode yet. Award-winning sports talk personality Christopher “Mad Dog” Russo joins our podcast. Doggie called in from his office in Manhattan before hosting “High Heat” on MLB Network and “Mad Dog Unleashed” on SiriusXM’s Mad Dog Sports Radio to chat about New Yankee Stadium versus the old House That Ruth Bui…
 
Can you believe New Yankee Stadium opened 10 years ago? We’ll be looking back on the new Stadium throughout the course of this season. For starters, the ballpark ushered in a new era of Stadium food (#YankeeStadiYUM). And when you talk about the food offerings in the venue, you simply have to begin and end with the iconic Lobel’s USDA Prime Steak S…
 
In Episode 19 of Season 2 we first discuss the “ticket floors” that the Yankees set with StubHub – these are minimums that different tickets can be sold for. It’s good to know so that you’re not waiting for a ticket to drop to a price that it simply can’t; it’s also good to know so that you can plot the best value for your budget. Also, we’ll talk …
 
In the second episode of Season 2, we chat with Jimmy McKay, a Doctor of Physical Therapy and host of the wildly-popular PT Pintcast. With Miguel Andujar heading to the IL (no longer DL, we chat about that too) due to a torn labrum in his right shoulder, McKay breaks down not only the labrum’s function but also why these types of injuries may be mo…
 
Following the Yankees unceremonious exit at the hands of that team from New England… it was a long, long offseason. If you can believe it, the wait for a new Pinstripe Lanes Podcast was even longer. Opening Day is less than 24 hours away, and Season 2 of the PLP begins now. Our guest? Just a couple of minutes with Giancarlo Stanton! Plus I’ll expla…
 
As the Yankees wrap up the final home stand of the regular season and second-to-last series against the Red Sox, we welcome current MLB Network studio host/field reporter and former NESN Red Sox reporter Heidi Watney to the podcast.

After a hiatus, the podcast returns but obviously it isn’t the most anticipated comeback in Yankee Universe. While reports emerge that Aroldis Chapman is close to pitching a simulated game and possibly rejoining the team, all eyes are on Aaron Judge. The power hitter has taken on-field batting practice the last three days (two as of this episode’s …

With the Yankees celebrating the 20th anniversary of the famed 1998 squad this weekend at the Stadium, I thought it would be rather timely to talk with our friends in beautiful Cooperstown, New York.

I’m flying solo this week on the podcast, our first since the All-Star Break, to talk about a number of items that popped up recently in Yankee Universe.

A real treat for our tenth episode of the podcast as we’re joined by Rick Cerrone, who served as the Senior Director of Public Relations for the New York Yankees from 1996 to 2006. Saying a lot happened in that time would be a grave understatement: postseason baseball every year, six visits to the World Series and of course four championships – in …

Lots of tips and knowledge in episode 05 of the Pinstripe Lanes Podcast. First, I’ll fill you in on the Levi’s pop-up shop that took place in the Great Hall of the Stadium over Memorial Day Weekend and how using your Mastercard could have not only saved you money there, but how it can also still save you money in other parts of the ballpark.

So how was the Legends Suite compared to everything we’ve heard about it and perhaps more importantly, how did I buy Legends tickets for below face value and under the StubHub ticket floor? I answer both of those questions to kick off episode three of the podcast. Then, I chat with YES Network Digital Content Creator A.J. Herrmann. He explains what…
