What can you say about the New York Yankees? Not only are they the most successful team in Major League history, they’re probably the most successful of all professional sports teams in North America. Yankees baseball jerseys have been worn by many of the all-time legends of the game: Babe Ruth, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, Lou Gehrig, Whitey Ford, and many others. They've won 27 World Series championships, more than twice the number of any other MLB team.
The team's illustrious history began in 1901 when they were established as the Baltimore Orioles. In 1903, they moved to the Big Apple and spent a decade as the New York Highlanders before finally becoming the “Yankees” in 1913. With the arrival of Babe Ruth in 1920, the Yankees began their transition to powerhouse status. The Yankees won four World Series titles during Ruth's 15-year tenure with the team (1923, 1927, 1928, 1932). But the team had much more going for them than just Ruth. The "Murderers' Row" lineup of 1927, which included Lou Gehrig, Earle Combs, and Herb Pennock, is widely considered the best in baseball history. On April 18, 1923, the team played their first game at Yankee Stadium.
In 1936, center fielder Joe DiMaggio stepped in to fill the void left by the recently retired Ruth. During his 13-year career, DiMaggio helped the Yankees win nine World Series championships. He also set one of the most enduring records in sports: his 56-game hitting streak, achieved during the 1941 season. During the DiMaggio era, another future legend joined the team: Yogi Berra (1946). Other superstars signed on around this time, including Whitey Ford (1950) and Mickey Mantle (1951), while Roger Maris came aboard in 1960.
