The Bench

The New York Yankees are a professional baseball team based in the Bronx, New York City, New York. They compete in Major League Baseball as a member club of the American League East division. They are one of two major league clubs based in New York City; the other is the National League’s Mets. The Yankees began play in the 1901 season 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 the club the New York Highlanders. The Highlanders were officially renamed as the Yankees in 1913.

The team is owned by Yankee Global Enterprises, an LLC controlled by the family of George Steinbrenner, who purchased the team in 1973. Brian Cashman is the team’s general manager, and Aaron Boone is the team’s field manager. The team’s home games were played at Yankee Stadium from 1923 to 1973 and from 1976 to 2008. In 1974 and 1975, their home games were split between Yankee Stadium and Shea Stadium in Flushing Meadows–Corona Park, Queens while Yankee Stadium underwent massive renovation. From 2009 to 2012, their home games were played at Tropicana Field while their new stadium was built across East 161st Street from Heritage Field at Union Station and opened on April 16, 2009 against their traditional rivals—the Boston Red Sox[10]—who defeated them 19–8.[11][12] The move controversially prompted Newark officials to file a lawsuit against then-Mayor Rudy Giuliani for violating an agreement in which Newark would get first consideration for any future MLB teams going into New York City.[13] Following controversy surrounding Hurricane Katrina victims being temporarily relocated to Houston Astros’ Minute Maid Park before its closing for that year’s All-Star Game,[14][15] Major League Baseball announced that once Tropicana Field was no longer their home field following their final game there on September 30, 2012,[16][17], they would be moving to a new ballpark across 161st Street beginnings with Opening Day on April 4th vs arch rivals Baltimore Orioles who christened Oriole Park At Camden Yards on April 6th.[18]

The Manager

Joe Girardi is an excellent tactician and motivator, and he has plenty of experience managing some of the game’s brightest stars. In his first year with the Yankees, Girardi led the team to a World Series title, and he followed that up with another trip to the Fall Classic in 2009. In each of his first three seasons at the helm, Girardi has guided the Yankees to at least 103 wins.

The Pitching Coach

The Pitching Coach (sometimes called just “the pitching coach”) is a member of a baseball or softball coaching staff who specializes in instructing and training pitchers. The pitching coach works with the pitching staff to prepare pitchers for game day and improve their long-term performance.

Pitching coaches typically work with all of the pitchers on a team, from the starters to the relievers. They may also work with pitchers at different levels within an organization, from rookies in the minor leagues to experienced veterans in the major leagues. In some cases, a pitching coach may focus on working with just one pitcher, such as a closer or someone who is struggling with their control.

The pitching coach is often one of the most important members of a coaching staff, as they can have a profound impact on a team’s success. A good pitching coach can help a pitcher to develop their skills, stay healthy, and perform at their best when it matters most.

The Hitting Coach

The Hitting Coach is responsible for helping the team’s hitters improve their batting skills. They work with the hitters on their techniques and provide them with feedback on their performance. The Hitting Coach also develops hitting plans for the team’s batters and advises the manager on when to make lineup changes.

The Farm System

The New York Yankees have one of the most storied farm systems in baseball. The Yankees have a rich history of successfully developing players and winning championships. The Yankees have a commitment to player development and scouting. This commitment has led to the Yankees having one of the most successful farm systems in baseball.

The Minor Leagues

The Minor Leagues are professional baseball’s farm system, a network of clubs throughout the United States and Canada that compete at levels below Major League Baseball (MLB). All of the minor leagues are operated as independent businesses. Most are members of affiliated blocks that cooperate on matters such as scheduling and most players move freely between levels with few restrictions.

Unaffiliated minor leagues are also present, but they are much less common; most lack the financial stability to remain in business for very long, while some serve as developmental leagues for MLB or independent (non-affiliated) baseball. Each major league team has an affiliation with one minor league club; these affiliations provide both player development opportunities for the parent club and employment to minor league players. Although it has only been since 1962 that Major League Baseball recognised these rights, the minors have a long history dating back to 1877.

The Major Leagues

A farm system is a network of minor league baseball teams used to develop players for the major leagues. Every major league team has their own farm system, and each system is made up of several minor league teams.

Players first sign with a major league organization and are assigned to a specific minor league team. They may be promoted or demoted from this team to another within the organization as they develop their skills or recover from injuries.

Once a player has developed their skills enough to play at the major league level, they are called up to the big leagues and can be moved between the majors and minors as needed.
