New York Yankees Games
One of Major League Baseball’s (MLB) most popular teams is the New York Yankees. Nicknames include the Bronx Bombers, Evil Empire, Pinstripers, and Yanks. They are based in New York City’s Bronx borough, and they compete in the American League (AL) East Division. Although the New York Yankees are synonymous with NYC culture, the team's history can actually be traced back to Baltimore.
In 1901, the franchise began playing as the Baltimore Orioles – a team that has no relation to the contemporary Baltimore Orioles. When the team was purchased in 1903, operations moved to NYC. They were renamed the New York Highlanders, a name they kept until 1913, when they became the New York Yankees.
Some people regard the Yankees as one of the most successful professional sport teams in the United States. This type of claim is sure to work up somefans, but the Yankees do have a stunning record. Since being established in 1901, they have won around 19 American League East Division titles, 40 American League pennants, and 27 World Series championships. All of these scores are MLB records. However, the success of the Yankees is renown beyond MLB. They have reportedly won more titles than any other team in the four major North American professional sports leagues. Forbes even describes them as having the second-highest financial value in the U.S. and the second-highes financial value on the globe, worth an astounding $4.6 billion.
The most prominent rival of the New York Yankees is the Boston Red Sox. These teams are famous for their long history, stringing fans along for the ride for over 100 years – often called “the best” or “the greatest rivalry in all of sports.” For people who crave that stadium energy and the polarizing intensity of a fierce match, there is nothing like seeing these two teams in a head-to-head throwdown. Whether they are competing for a league title or a spot in the playoffs, it is bound to be an instant classic. The Subway Series, matches between the baseball teams in NYC, pull together the Mets, Dodgers, and Giants, which is exciting to watch, too. But frankly, the Yankees are one of the top teams to beat in MLB, so potential rivalries can inflate overnight. For a chance to see this historic, inspiring team fight for another win, head to Yankee Stadium where their home games are held.
