One of two major baseball teams in New York City, along with the New York Mets, the Yankees officially began in 1901, playing in the American League East Division as the Baltimore Orioles (not to be confused with the Baltimore Orioles of today). In 1903, baseball executive Frank Ferrell purchased the franchise with New York City's first Chief of Police, William "Big Bill" Devery, for $18,000 and moved operations to New York, where the club was renamed the New York Highlanders. The Highlanders were given their name due to their home ballpark on Hilltop Park, one of the highest points in Upper Manhattan. They came close to winning the league in their first year under this name (1904), but lost the deciding game to the Boston Americans, now known as the Boston Red Sox. The Highlanders later moved into a newly built stadium, far away from their highland home, and the name began to lose its touch. The media had already begun to use the Yankee nickname, and in 1913, it was officially adopted as the team name. Over 100 years and an unprecedented legacy later, the New York Yankees continue to dominate the game. Use StubHub to buy or sell New York Yankees tickets today!
The New York Yankees are one of the most successful sports franchises the world has ever seen. Their 18 division titles, 40 American League championships and 27 World Series wins are all Major League Baseball records. The club has also won more titles than any team in the other three dominant American sports leagues, i.e. the NBA, the NHL and the NFL. Infamous for using a high payroll to attract the best talent, the Yankees are continually named by 'Forbes' in the top five most valuable sports teams in the world. In 2017, they were second behind the NFL's Dallas Cowboys. It's evident, then, that this ball team possesses something special.
