Robert Cowell of Easthampton, MA and his 6-year old son
sport their matching caps. Dad reports that his son, already
a true Yankee Hater, rarely leaves the house without his
Yankees Hater #8516--otherwise known as Bob
Knapik--takes his daughter, Katherine, to her first-ever
Red Sox game. This game occurred during '05 Spring Training,
at City of Palms Park in Ft. Myers, FL. The Knapiks hail
from Titusville, FL.
"You say this fire call came from
Yankee Stadium? Hmmmm. That's a tough one."
Scott Valpey, a firefighter for the Egypt, N.Y. Fire Department,

If little Tess Cooley (left) could talk,
she would probably say: “and if you think this looks
rough, wait and see what I’ve got for that Yankees
fan over there!” Tess hails from California (hre
father, David, submitted the photo). The unfortunate victim
is Alexander Albrecht.

With an NFL championship already in the bag in 2004, this
New England family arrives at Fenway Park in search of
a Sox title. At the expense of the Yankees, of course.
Anthony Fittizzi of Belle Mead, NJ enjoys a hateful honeymoon
in Aruba, with his wife Giselle behind the camera. This
Yankee Hater is a big Curt Schilling fan, so the famed
“YH w/ Horns” baseball cap has a solid #2 ranking on his
list of favorite travel companions.
Yeah, we’ll post a photo from a Yankee fan once in a while
if it’s good enough. Here, Chris Boino of Brimfield, MA

Trenton Adam, the 13-month-old son of Steven & Kellie
Adam (Westfield, MA) dons a “yh” cap after pulling it
off the head of a family friend, Sharon Kamlowski. No
such thing as starting them too young!
“No one messes with my ‘Hater!” is the message seemingly
conveyed by Barkley, a chocolate lab who resides in Sturbridge,
MA with his owners, Heidi & Erin Cooper.
After 2 years playing in the AAA level of
the Endwell, N.Y. Little League, Matt Potochniak was excited
to learn that he was selected to play in the "Majors"
division this year. The excitement waned, however, when
Matt was drafted by the league's Yankees team. Matt, an
avid YH'er, refused to don the official MLB Yankees cap
that came with his uniform, opting instead for the cap
seen in this photo. Talk about taking a stand in hostile
"Lucky", a horse owned by John
and Melissa Farrell, sports a long face and a YH cap while
hanging out in the barn. Didn't anyone tell him that the
Sox won the World Series and pummeled the Yankees in the
It’s easy to relax with a “Hateful in Pink” baby tee,

When one Yankee Hater (Sharon Codey) marries another Yankee

Our dog Fenway—just a pup at the time--gets off to a rocky
start in the household after gnawing one of our original
“yh” cap prototypes.
This Yankee Hater photo still amazes us. This is the “one
year” formal portrait of little Michael Novia III. In
other words, it’s the type of heirloom that will be passed
from generation to generation. Proud parents Michael Novia,
Jr. and Tara Novia (of Worcester, MA) are now the answer
to the following trivia question: Which two people are
responsible for the second professional photo of the “Yankeeshater.com”
baseball cap? (after the Curt Schilling photo snapped
by Boston Herald photographer Mike Seamans)
Tim Graham wears the mark of the beast (his cap # is
666) as he hates on the

Erin “Coop” Cooper of Lee, MA hooks into a trophy-sized rainbow in the Ottauquechee River in Pittsfield, VT as guide Matt Stedina tends the net. A red “YH with Horns” Yankee Hater cap takes in the action from atop Coop’s head.
