New York Yankees

New York Yankees
Established in 1901, the New York Yankees are one of the most storied and successful franchises in Major League Baseball. The team was founded in 1901 in Baltimore, but moved to New York in 1903 where they became known as the New York Highlanders. The team officially became the New York Yankees in 1913. In all, the Yankees have won 26 championships, more than any other franchise. Countless Hall of Fame players have donned pinstripes over the years, including Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Yogi Berra and Mickey Mantle. (Photo GETTY IMAGES)

  • Don Mattingly's time on Hall of Fame ballot comes to close

    From 1984 through 1989, few were as great as Don Mattingly. The same can be said for his trademark mustache. Alas, that six-season stretch wasn't enough for Donnie Baseball to earn enough votes to become a Hall of Famer this year, his 15th and final...

  • Tribune Hall of Fame ballots

    I watched Randy Johnson pitch for the first time in a college game in 1983, and his ascent from awkward freshman to Hall of Famer marks as one of the greatest transformations I've witnessed. The fact he won 24 games and pitched 260 innings at 38 in 2002...
