History of the Yankees
In 1903, Frank Farrell and Bill Devery purchased the bankrupt New York franchise of the American League (AL) from Baltimore Orioles owner Harry von der Horst for $18,000. The new owners renamed the team the New York Highlanders, after their Levittown, NY home stadium. They also transferred the franchise to AL President Ban Johnson’s new baseball league. As an original member of the AL, this gave them an automatic berth in that year’s World Series, which they lost to the Boston Pilgrims (now Red Sox) five games to three.
