The Complete History of the New York Yankees
The New York Yankees are referred to as America's team. The team has won twenty-eight world championships and many of baseball's best players of all time have worn the Yankee pinstripes.
The franchise started in 1903 as the team was first referred to as the New York Highlanders because their stadium was located at 168th Street and Broadway, which is one of the highest points of Manhattan. The team was not officially called the Yankees until 1913. The franchise recorded three, second-place finishes in the team's first four seasons but for the most part the first seventeen years of the team's history were very frustrating.
Then in 1915, Col. Jacob Ruppert and Til Houston purchased the Yankees from the original owners, Frank Farrell and Bill Devery, for $460,000. Three years later they hired Miller Huggins to manage the club and slowly began to assemble the players who would go on to become the supporting cast that would help launch the greatest dynasty in sports history.
