American League baseball team based in The Bronx, New York. They were established in 1901 and currently play in Yankees Stadium. Some famous players include: Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig,Mickey Mantle, Derek Jeter, Joe Dimaggio, Don Mattingly and countless others most of which have been inducted into the baseball hall of fame in Cooperstown.

Undoubtedly the most dominant professional sports franchise in the US and possibly the world. As of now ('06) 26 world series wins, 39 World series appearances and a history of winning, legendary players and professionalism unparalleled to any other ball club in MLB.
lots of people are jealous of the new york yankees because of their success, especially people who troll on Urban dictionary. Yankee fans don't care what others think, we stick by our team through thick and thin.

people point out the obvious by stating that the yankees buy players, no shit sherlock, every team buys players you pay players to play- hence PROFESSIONAL baseball, this ain't little league- the yankees are better at it because it has the biggest and most dedicated fan base in the US.

we also have johnny damon

Without question, the most dominant team in the history of all professional sports. Also, the most disciplined and respected team in MLB. The standard by which to judge a major league team. The best team in baseball. Consistently owns the Boston Red Sox.
The New York Yankees have won more World Series than most other professional teams combined.

definition to the most band wagon fans in the history of all sports...fan's who whine when they don't get the next 50+ million dollar contract player (even though they have about 9 of them already)...fan's who think there team is the shit even though they are the only 'dynasty' to blow a 3 game lead in ANY playoff series known...not to mention it was the ALCS where they are suppose to OWN everybody with there un-godly amount of payroll...the only line a bandwagon yankee fan has is..."26 world titles man"...it's like the saying goes...everytime a bell rings, a converted devil ray/royal/padre fan turns into a yankee fan...
"Hey we have 26 world titles!"..."yea i don't know shit about baseball, and i've never watched a yankee game, but i can buy there fitted hats, wear them backwards, and walk around saying that we've won 26 world titles"...(that is what a new york yankees fan basically does)

the greatest sports franchise known to man, the one and only, the cream of the crop, every boston fan's worst nightmare. witnessing a game in the bronx is better than sex. one might get chills down their spine when the phrase" YANKEE--BASEBALL" is uttered by 52,000 strong during a game in the mecca of sports-yankee stadium.
"what does a hot dog and beer taste like in fenway park during a game in october?"--nobody knows...
