About New York Yankees in brief

Summary New York YankeesThe New York Yankees are an American professional baseball team based in the New York City borough of the Bronx. They compete in Major League Baseball as a member club of the American League East division. The team is owned by Yankee Global Enterprises, an LLC that is controlled by the family of the late George Steinbrenner, who purchased the team in 1973. The Yankees have won 19 American League East Division titles, 40 American League pennants, and 27 World Series championships, all of which are MLB records. According to Forbes, the Yankees are the second-highest valued sports franchise in the United States and the second in the world, with an estimated value of approximately USD 5 billion. Forty-four Yankees players and 11 Yankees managers have been inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame, including Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, and Whitey Ford. The club’s rivalry with the Boston Red Sox is one of the most well-known rivalries in North American sports. They are one of two major league clubs based in New York, the other being the National League’s New York Mets. They began play in the 1901 season as the Baltimore Orioles. The Orioles’ new owners, Frank J. Farrell and William S. Devery moved the team to New York in 1903. In 1913, the team was officially renamed theNew York Yankees in 1913. In 2009, they moved into a new ballpark of the same name that was constructed adjacent to the previous facility, which was closed and demolished.

They played at the original Yankee Stadium from 1923 to 1973 and from 1976 to 2008. In 1974 and 1975, they shared Shea Stadium with the Mets, in addition to the New New York Jets and New York Giants. In 1904, they lost the deciding game to the Boston Americans, who later became the BostonRed Sox. The original Polo Grounds burned down in 1911 and the Highlanders shared the Polo Grounds with the Giants during a two-month renovation period from 1912 to 1913. The New York Highlanders were commonly referred to as the New York Americans, because of the team’s elevated location in Upper Manhattan, or as a nod to team president Joseph Gordon’s Scottish-Irish heritage. In the early 1900s, Ban Johnson, the president of a minor league known as the Western League, asked the National league to classify it as a major league. The National League ridiculed the plan, and a team was instead placed in Baltimore, Maryland, in 1901 named the Orioles. Between 1901 and 1903, many players and coaches on the Orioles roster jumped to the Giants. At the conference, Johnson requested that an AL team be put in NewYork, to play alongside the NL’s Giants. It was put to a vote, and 15 of the 16 major league owners agreed on it. At this time, there was no formal agreement wherein the AL and NL winners would play each other each other in the World Series. The Yankees’ overall win-loss record is 10,411–7,867.
