Sports Writer Mark Feinsand ’92 has just released his latest book, Mission 27: A New Boss, A New Ballpark, and One Last Ring for The Yankees’ Core Four (Triumph Books 2019). Mission 27 takes an in depth look at the 2009 World Series champion New York Yankees and their longstanding key players – Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, Jorge Posada, and Andy Pettitte – who led the franchise to capture baseball’s ultimate prize for a league-leading twenty-seventh time.
The book is comprised of interviews with players, team executives, broadcasters, and other industry insiders and the Foreword to Mission 27 was written by retired Yankees first baseman Nick Swisher. Released on June 4, 2019, the book has already become an Amazon Best Seller.
Feinsand, who also authored The New York Yankees Fans’ Bucket List, has been a sports writer for over two decades, exclusively covering Major League Baseball since 2001. Since 2017, he has been Exclusive Reporter for MLB.com, writing about the entire league on a national level.
