The NY Yankees, as the name suggests, are a New York City team. The NY Yankees is one of eight original charter franchises of the American Baseball League and enjoy an illustrious career. It is one of the most celebrated baseball teams in American sports with a hundred-year-old history that truly reflects the catchphrase “empire" in professional sports. On November 4, 2009, NY Yankees clinched their 27th World Series title against Philadelphia.
Originally, the team was founded as the Baltimore Orioles in 1901. It was moved to the New York City in 1903 with New York Highlanders as the new name. The team earned the title “Yankees" in 1913. New York Yankees, along with New York Mets, are New York’s two major league franchises that have a prominent place in the world of Baseball.
Lou Stallman and Bob Bundin wrote the song “Here Come the Yankees” for the team which became a roaring success. “New York, New York" is the other song that is aired at the conclusion of each home game. The anthem will be the Frank Sinatra’s version if the NY Yankees win. In case of a defeat, the original version Liza Minnelli’ of the same song will be played.
The New York Yankees possess the astonishing record of clinching twenty-seven World Series wins in forty appearances, a fact that draws tremendous respect, popularity and following from millions of American baseball fans.
