Formed in 1901, the New York Yankees have obtained 27 World Series titles and 40 AL Pennants, the most for any franchise. The New York Yankees play in Yankee Stadium, which is located in Bronx in New York City, New York. It replaced the old Yankee Stadium, nicknamed "The House that Ruth Built". Legends like Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, Joe DiMaggio, Lou Gehrig, Don Mattingly, George Steinbrenner, Bernie Williams, Goose Gossage, Jorge Posoda, and Ron Guidry have represented the New York Yankees.
This season, the team will exhibit perennial talents like Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Mariano Rivera, Mark Teixeira, Robinson Cano, Andy Pettitte, C.C Sabathia, and Curtis Granderson. The New York Yankees are often referred to as the Bronx Bombers, Yanks, or for older fans the Highlanders. The New York Yankees play in the American League East division. Their biggest foe is the Boston Red Sox, considered one of the most heated rivalries in all of sports if not the most. The rivalry first started with the trade of Babe Ruth from the Red Sox to the Yankees, and has continued ever since. The Yankees also have a cross-town rivalry with the New York Mets, called the Subway Series. The New York Yankees wear the colors midnight navy and white.
