The New York Yankees or "Bronx Bombers" have been one of the best teams in the history of baseball. They have won several World Series championships and continue to be one of the top teams in baseball history. The Yankees have had a lot of great players such as Babe Ruth, Yogi Berra, and currently Derek Jeter. Throughout the Yankees franchise history, they have been a remarkable team. Since the beginning of the 2010 baseball season the Bronx Bombers have won 40 American League pennants and 27 World Series Championships.
The Yankees started as a franchise in 1903, when Frank Farrell and Bill Devery purchased the defunct Baltimore franchise of the American League for $18,000 and then moved the team to Manhattan. They renamed the team the "Highlanders" and their first win was April 23, 1903 against Washington and this was just the beginning of the Yankees franchise.
The Yankees had remarkable people working in the franchise as well. Bob Sheppard was the Yankees announcer for over fifty years. He passed away several months ago. Reggie Jackson gave him the nickname, "The Voice of God" because of the way his voice was always consistent and smooth while announcing the players and coaches.
Another notable person would be George "The Boss" Steinbrenner. Steinbrenner also passed away several months ago. Under his management, the Yankees have won more championships than with any other manager.
The management, players, and their dedication to the fans are why the New York Yankees are such a great team.
