NEW YORK YANKEES
The New York Yankees are an American professional baseball team based in the New York City borough of the Bronx. They were established in 1901 and based in New York City since 1903. The team is owned by Yankee Global Enterprises, an LLC controlled by the family of late George Steinbrenner, who purchased the team in 1973. They are notable for wearing midnight navy blue, gray and white uniforms, the Yankees compete in Major League Baseball (MLB) as a member club of the American League (AL) East division. In the 1901 season, the club began play in the AL as the Baltimore Orioles. The team's general manager is Brian Cashman while Aaron Boone is the team's field manager. New York Yankees’ home games were played at the Original Yankee Stadium from 1923 to 1973 and from 1976 to 2008. They have been nicknamed “The Bronx Bombers”, “The Yanks”, “The Pinstripers”, “The Bronx Zoo”, “The Evil Empire” and “Murderer's Row”. Over the years, they have changed their names from the establishment. They are:
Baltimore Orioles (1901- 1902),
New York Highlanders (1903- 1912),
New York Yankees (1913- present).
The Yankees have won 18 division titles, 40 AL pennants and 27 World Series championships, all of which are MLB records.
OPENING DAY CEREMONY
Old Yankee Stadium was nicknamed "The House That Ruth Built" for a reason. During the very first ball game over played at the enormous facility in April 1923, the famed slugger hit a powerful home run to right field that would set the pace for his record-breaking career as a Yankee. Ruth kept the stadium full year after year. Since the time of its opening, more than eight decade ago, the stadium was the home to one of the greatest teams in sports, the New York Yankees, with legendary players such as Babe Ruth.
PERFORMANCE IN 2017
The 2017 New York Yankees season was the 115th season in New York City for the Yankees, and the 117th season overall for the franchise. It was also the final season with manager Joe Girardi. The Yankees finished the regular season with 91 wins and 71 losses. The season was considered a breakout season for many players, including starting pitcher Luis Severino who emerged as arguably the Yankee's best pitcher as well as rookie outfielder Aaron Judge, who broke the rookie record by passing Mark McGwire for most home runs by a rookie (50) on September 25, 2017. Judge ended the season by leading the American League with 52 home runs. The Yankees also clinched a playoff berth after missing the playoffs the previous year and won at least 90 games for the first time since 2012. They struggled to catch up to the defending American League East Champions the Boston Red Sox after being in first place in the beginning of the season. They managed to clinch their sixth wild card berth and their third in seven seasons. The Yankees defeated the Minnesota Twins 8-4 in the Wild Card Game and the Cleveland Indians in five games in the Division Series before losing to the Houston Astros in seven games in the 2017 American League Championship Series.
The Yankees had one of their most successful spring training performances in recent memory, finishing with a 24-9-1 record- the best in major leagues. The team had many players participate in the 2017 World Baseball Classic, including shortstop Didi Gregorius (Netherlands) and relievers Dellin Betances (Dominican Republic), Tyler Clippard (United States), and Tommy Layne (Italy). One of the most notable elements of Yankees camp in 2017 was the presence of top prospects. Infielders Gleyber Torres, Miguel Andujar, Tyler Wade, and Jorge Mateo; outfielders Clint Frazier, Dustin Fowler, and Aaron Judge; and pitchers Chad Green, James Kaprielian, and Jordan Montgomery highlighted the Yankees' strong farm system's presence at Spring Training.
On August 24, 2017, at Comerica Park the Yankees and Detroit Tigers game broke into a brawl. The altercation led to several suspensions and fines for players on both teams, with the game being labeled as the "MLB's wildest game of the 2017 season".
On September 25 in a makeup game against the Kansas City Royals, Aaron Judge tied and broke the MLB rookie record for home runs hit in a single year. In doing so, he became the youngest player to have 7 multi-home run games in Yankee history since Babe Ruth and Mickey Mantle. In October, the Yankees won the AL Wild Card Game 8-4. Yankees rallied from trailing 0-2 to rally to win the ALDS in 5 games against Cleveland Indians. Yankees also trailed the ALCS 0-2 and were 1 win away from heading to World Series but failed and lost in 7 against the Astros.
One of the main storylines of the early season was the series of injuries the Yankees suffered. The team started the season without their shortstop, Didi Gregorius, who had maintained an injury playing in the 2017 World Baseball Classic.
The New York Yankees made all sorts of splashes in the month of July to improve their ball club. The Yankees acquired Sonny Gray from the Oakland Athletics for three prospects, two of which are currently injured. General manager Brian Cashman made trades with the Chicago White Sox and Minnesota Twins to bring in Todd Frazier, Tommy Kahnle, David Robertson and Jaimie Garcia.
