Even if you don’t call yourself a loyal fan of “the Yanks”, it’s nearly impossible not to respect and be somewhat in awe of the myriad accomplishments of this historic MLB team since their start in 1901. In 40 World Series appearances, the New York Yankees have won an astounding and record setting 27 times. This figure translates to an appearance every 2.7 seasons and a championship every 4 seasons. Between the years 1949-1953, the team won the World Series five times in a row! The St. Louis Cardinals, in second place, have bagged a total of 11 World Series victories. The New York Yankees have captured more titles, including 40 American League pennants, than any other franchise in the four major North American sports leagues! Eleven Yankee managers and forty-four players, including iconic legends Babe Ruth, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, Lou Gehrig and Whitey Ford, have been inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Valued at approximately $4 billion, the Yankees are the second highest (NFL Dallas Cowboys are number one) valued sports franchise in the United States.
