Michael Tusiani, Senior Vice President of Partnerships at the New York Yankees, echoed the sentiment, stating, “We are extremely excited to partner with DKNY this season. DKNY is an iconic New York company and having its logo prominently displayed in the outfield will provide its brand great exposure at Yankee Stadium throughout the year.”
