In this tutorial, you will learn how to draw the Yankees symbol step by step. The Yankees are a professional baseball team based in the Bronx, New York City. They compete in Major League Baseball (MLB) as a member club of the American League (AL) East division. They are one of two major league clubs based in New York City, the other being the Mets. The Yankees began play in 1901 as an expansion team known as the Baltimore Orioles (no relation to the modern Baltimore Orioles). In 1903, Frank Farrell and Bill Devery purchased the franchise after it ceased operations and moved it to New York City, renaming it the New York Highlanders. The Highlanders were officially renamed as the “Yankees” in 1913.

What You Will Need


Now let’s get started!

Step One

Start by drawing a big Y in the center of your paper. This will be the main part of the Yankees logo.

Step Two

Now that you have your basic shape, you can start to add in the details. The top part of the “Y” should be curved inward, and the bottom part should be curved outward. The left side of the “Y” should be straight, and the right side should be curved. Draw a small circle in the middle of the “Y” for the baseball.

Step Three

Now that you have the basic shape of the logo, you can start to add in the details. First, draw a small circle in the middle of the logo for the baseball. Then, draw two curved lines coming out from either side of the baseball to create the bat. Make sure to leave a small space at the top of the bat for the hand grip. Finally, add two lines coming down from the top of the oval to complete the Yankees’ iconic “NY” logo.

Step Four

To finish adding detail to the Yankees’ symbol, start by giving the stitches on the baseball some dimension. Outline each stitch with a curved line, and then fill it in. Next, finish drawing the bat by adding a few curved lines to its surface. Finally, use a short, straight line to enclose a small rectangle near the bottom of the “Y” for the knob of the bat.

Step Five

Now you will finish drawing the Yankees logo by adding the final touches. First, use a black brush to outline the entire symbol. Make sure that the lines are thick and even. Then, add two small black triangles above the “Y” to represent the horns of a bull. Finally, use a white brush to add some highlights to the top of the “Y” and to the bottom left side of the logo.

Step Six

Now you will finish drawing the stance of the batter. Draw two small squares on either side of the head for the shoulders. Draw a line from each square down to where the glove hand meets the bat. Now you will finish drawing the baseball itself. Draw a curved line from one side of the baseball to the other. This will give the baseball a three dimensional look. Finally, add some lines inside of the baseball for stitches. Erase any lines and shapes that are not needed and you have finished drawing the New York Yankees logo!


In conclusion, drawing the Yankees symbol is not too difficult. With a little bit of practice, you should be able to get it down perfectly. Remember to use light, smooth strokes and to take your time.
