The history of the New York Yankees begins back in 1903 when Frank Farrell and Bill Devery purchased a failing franchise out of Baltimore and moved it to New York. The team began under the nickname the Highlanders. It was not until 10 years later, when the team started playing their home games at the Polo Grounds, that they became known as the Yankees. In 1918, the fate of the New York Yankees changed forever with one decision to purchase Babe Ruth from the Boston Red Sox for $125,000. For his time with the Yankees, Ruth is known as perhaps the greatest baseball player to ever live and Yankee fans will always remember his greatness.
The New York Yankees have had many players reach the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown. Lou Gehrig was recognized for years as the iron man of baseball, playing in 2,130 straight games, a streak that lasted from 1925 to 1939. Aside from being immortalized by Paul Simon in song, Joe Dimaggio is also known for his incredible hitting streak. A record that still stands to this day, his 56-game hitting streak has not even been close to being touched in the years since it was set. From Mantle to Maris, from Rizzuto to Jackson, the New York Yankees have had too many great players to name them all.
Every season the Yankees are playing for the World Series title, and anything short of that is a failed season. It won't be easy for them this season though, as the American League East may be the most competitive division in all of Major League Baseball featuring teams like the Baltimore Orioles, Tampa Bay Rays, Toronto Blue Jays and, of course, their bitter rivals, the Boston Red Sox.
