The New York Yankees have one of the most storied histories in all of Major League Baseball. Tickets to New York Yankees’ games have been some of the most sought after commodities in pro sports, and they are often a rewarding experience. The Yankees are typically at or near the top of the American League East Division, and their perennial success has made them all the more popular. You can go to almost any country in the world and see people wearing the familiar “NY” baseball cap. They have become synonymous with baseball, and American in general.
Some of the most famous names in baseball history have been Yankees. Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Mickey Mantle, Joe DiMaggio, Don Mattingly, and Derek Jeter have all been members of the Bronx Bombers. They have more Hall of Fame players than any other team in the Majors, and they have won more World Series Championships than any other team, as well. They currently play in the third incarnation of Yankee Stadium, a huge structure located in the Bronx that opened up in 2009.
The Yankees were founded in 1901 and then moved to New York in 1903, where they’ve been ever since. They were not ever regarded as a serious team, though, until Babe Ruth was picked up in 1920 when he was sold by the Boston Red Sox—the top team in the Majors at the time. They didn’t win another World Series for the rest of Ruth’s lifetime. Ever since then, Boston has been the biggest rival of the Yankees. This was the fuel for the “Curse of the Bambino,” something that took 84 years for the Boston Red Sox to overcome.
This vast history of success is a big part of the reason why tickets to the Yankees are still so popular today. There are still many stars on the team, even if they are going through a rebuilding period. With one of the most loyal fan bases in all of pro sports and the largest payroll in MLB, the Yankees will be a top performer in baseball for many years to come.
