They are one of North America’s most successful sports franchises, beating out the NHL’s Montreal Canadiens’ record of 24 championships in 1999. The New York Yankees were founded in 1901 as the original Baltimore Orioles. Moving to New York two years later, the team has since gone on to showcase some of the most famous names in baseball history, including Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, and Yogi Berra, to name only a few. And while they are adored by their fans, they are hated by pretty much everyone else. It’s lonely at the top. In this video, WatchMojo.com continues our series on the Greatest Sports Franchises of All Time with a look at the New York Yankees.
