The New York Yankees have set the mark for success in baseball and in doing so have become the marquee franchise in the Major Leagues. As one of the charter members of the American League, the Yankees started play in 1901 as the Baltimore Orioles. While the plan had originally been to put an American League team in New York, the then New York Giants blocked the efforts. With the removal of some obstacles in 1902, the Orioles moved to New York and became the Highlanders. The team would remain the Highlanders until 1913, when the name was finally changed to the Yankees.

The franchise's first two decades of existence weren't particularly eventful and presaged none of the success it would enjoy in the following decades. By the early 1920s the pieces had been put in place to propel the Yankees to excellence. By this time owners Jacob Ruppert and Tillinghast L'Hommedieu Huston had taken over for the original owners, Ed Barrow became general manager, and Miller Huggins was hired as manager. The most important piece was Babe Ruth, famously (or infamously) acquired from the Boston Red Sox. These pieces in place, the Yankess made three straight World Series appearances from 1921 to 1923; they face the Giants each year, losing the first two series and winning the third. The Yankees made three more World Series appearances in the 1920s, losing one and winning two in a row.

World Series appearances in the 1920s:

  • 1921: Lost 5-3 to the New York Giants

  • 1922: Lost 4-0 to the New York Giants

  • 1923: Won 4-2 over the New York Giants

  • 1926: Lost 4-3 to the St. Louis Cardinals

  • 1927: Won 4-0 over the Pittsburgh Pirates

The Yankees started off the 1930s strongly and finished in the same way, despite the loss of legends such Ruth and Gehrig toward the end of the decade. The true mark of the Yankees' dominance came in the form of World Series titles. The decade saw the Yankees defeat the Chicago Cubs, New York Giants and Cincinnati Reds, including four straight World Series from 1936 to 1939.

Although the 1976 Yankees were swept by the "Big Red Machine" Cincinnati Reds, it would be the first of three consecutive World Series appearances. The Yankees won the next two Series (1977 and 1978), both times defeating the Dodgers in six games. During this time, the colorful and at times volatile mix of players such as Thurman Munson, Reggie Jackson and Catfish Hunter with manager Billy Martin led to the teams of the late 1970s being known as the "Bronx Zoo".
