The New York Yankees are baseball’s most successful franchise, exerting their dominance over the sport for more than a century. The Yankee’s first experience with success came in the early 1920s. After acquiring Babe Ruth from the Boston Red Sox, New York made back-to-back-to-back World Series appearances from 1921 to 1923. After being denied their first two tries, the Yankees finally won the franchise’s first World Series title by knocking off the New York Giants in six games. Two years later the Yankees were back in the World Series, and in 1927 and 1928 Ruth teamed with Lou Gehrig to win two more championships. Ruth and Gehrig won World Series number four in 1932. From 1936 to 1964 the Yankees reached 22 World Series in 29 seasons, winning an astonishing 16 titles with stars like Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, Phil Rizzuto and Roger Maris. The next two World Series wins came in the late 1970s with another roster teeming with All-Stars. From 1995 to 2009 the Yankees were dominant once again, winning five World Series titles and being mainstays in the postseason thanks to stars like Derek Jeter, Roger Clemens and Mariano Rivera. The Yankees have retired 21 numbers through their illustrious history with stars Mariano Rivera, Andy Pettitte, and Bernie Williams joining those ranks in the last few years.
