The New York Yankees are an MLB franchise located in the Bronx borough in New York. Also commonly referred to as the "Bronx Bombers", the Yankees are one of the founding franchises of Major League Baseball's American League East Division. In 1901, the New York Yankees were founded in Baltimore, Maryland and originally named the Baltimore Orioles. The team was owned and managed by John McGraw. Two years later, they moved to New York City and became the New York Highlanders. In 1913, the team finally received its current name, the Yankees and their first home ballpark was Yankee Stadium.
With 40 American League pennants and 27 World Series titles to their name, the Yanks are one of Major League Baseball's most successful franchises. Due to their success, the Yankees are well-known in the sports world and the team's colors, white, navy blue, and gray, are widely recognized. Yankees’ rosters past and present have included some of the most famous All-Stars in baseball, including members of the National Baseball Hall of Fame, like Babe Ruth and Mickey Mantle, and modern day franchise stars, Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera. With 44 Yankees players and eleven managers inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame, New York has produced some of the best in the game.
