Yankees

The New York Yankees are an American 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 club is the National League’s (NL) New York Mets. The Yankees began play in the 1901 season as the Baltimore Orioles. In 1903, Frank Farrell and Bill Devery purchased the franchise after it ceased operations and moved it to New York City. The team’s name was changed to the New York Highlanders in 1913.

History

The New York Yankees are a Major League Baseball team based in The Bronx, New York. They compete in the American League East division. One of the American League’s eight charter franchises, the club was founded in Baltimore, Maryland in 1901 as the Baltimore Orioles. They moved to New York City in 1903 and became known as the Highlanders until 1913, when they adopted their now-famous pinstriped uniforms and were renamed the Yankees.

Rivalries

The Yankees–Red Sox rivalry is one of the oldest, most intense and well-known rivalries in Major Sports. It is often referred to as “The Rivalry”. The two teams have competed in Major League Baseball (MLB) for over 100 years and have since developed one of the fiercest rivalries in all of professional sports.

The Yankees–Red Sox rivalry is fueled by many things: the long history between the two teams, their geographical proximity, their disparate fan bases, and their recent successes. The rivalry is often a heated topic among fans and media, with each side believing that the other is overrated.

The first game between the two teams was played on April 26, 1901, at Fenway Park. The Yankees won that game, 5–3. Since then, the two teams have met 2,212 times in the regular season and 33 times in the postseason. As of 2019, the Yankees have won 1,275 games and the Red Sox have won 1,022 games.

Notable Players

The New York Yankees are a professional baseball team based in the Bronx, New York City, that competes in Major League Baseball (MLB). They are one of two major league clubs based in New York City, the other being the New York Mets of Queens. One of baseball’s first expansion teams, the Yankees joined the AL in 1901. In 1903, they won their first AL title. Over the next century, they won 27 more World Series titles and 40 AL pennants. The franchise has had some of baseball’s greatest players, including Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, and Derek Jeter.

History

The Yankees began play in the 1901 season as the Baltimore Orioles (no relation to the current Baltimore Orioles team). In 1903, Frank Farrell and Bill Devery purchased the franchise after it ceased operations and moved it to New York City, renaming the club the New York Highlanders. The Highlanders were officially renamed the New York Yankees in 1913.

Rules

The basic rules of baseball are simple. Two teams play by try to score runs by hitting a ball and then running around four bases set at the corners of a 90-foot square. The defending team tries to stop the batters from getting on base and/or advance runners already on base so they can score.

Here’s a quick rundown of the basic rules of baseball:

1. A game is played by two teams, each composed of nine players.
2. The field of play is divided into an infield and outfield. The infield is the area within three baselines that run between home plate and first, second, and third base (the “diamond”). The outfield is the area beyond the infield baselines.
3. Play begins with the visiting team’s batter (the player who hits the ball) taking his position at home plate, waiting for the pitcher (the player who throws the ball) to throw him a pitch. A pitch is any ball thrown by the pitcher that passes through home plate between waist-high and shoulder-high without touching either home plate or any part of the batter’s body or uniform (a “strike”). If a pitch does not result in a strike, it is called a “ball.” Four balls constitute a “walk” (the batter automatically advances to first base).
4. Once the batter hits the ball, he must attempt to run to first base before being tagged out (“touched”) by a fielder holding the ball (a “put-out”), thrown out by having a fielder catch him between bases (“caught stealing”), or retiring on his own accord by touching first base before being tagged out (“force-out”). Fielders may also attempt to throw runners out at other bases while they are running (“force play”). If successful, this is called an “assist.” If not, it’s just another put-out.

Teams

The American League East is one of Major League Baseball’s (MLB) six divisions. The East Division was created when MLB realigned itself into three divisions (East, West, and Central) in 1994. The East consists of 14 teams in two divisions: the AL East and the NL East.
