New York Yankees

The New York Yankees are one of the most famous and successful teams in the history of professional sports. Founded in 1901, the team is part of Major League Baseball (MLB) and has won 27 World Series. The Yankees boast a rich heritage of legendary players such as Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle and Derek Jeter. The team was known for its dynasty in the 1990s, winning four league titles between 1996 and 2000. Even though the Yankees haven't won the World Series in recent years, the team remains one of the strongest in MLB, with players like Aaron Judge and Gerrit Cole. The Yankees have a large fan base and their symbol, the "NY" hat, is one of the most recognizable in sports.

The team is owned by Yankee Global Enterprises, a limited liability company controlled by the family of George Steinbrenner, who purchased it in 1973. Aaron Boone is the team's manager and Brian Cashman is the general manager. The club played its home games at Yankee Stadium from 1923 to 1973 and from 1976 to 2008. In 2009 it moved to the new facility of the same name after the previous one closed. The team is consistently among the league's top in stadium attendance. The Yankees have attracted a huge fan following around the world, as well as a large amount of antipathy from fans of other MLB teams. Their main rivalry is the one with the Boston Red Sox, currently among the most intense in the world sporting scene; There is also antipathy towards the New York Mets, another franchise based in New York, but the difference in level that has emerged between the two teams in recent years has caused the hostility to subside.
