The New York Yankees won the World Series 27 times between 1923 and 1928, 1932, 1936, 1937, 1938, 1939, 1941, 1943, 1947, 1949, 1950, 1951, 1952, 1953, 1956, 1958, 1961, 1962, 1977, 1978, 1996, 1998, 1999, 2000, and 2009. In addition, the Bronx Bombers were co-champions with the Chicago White Sox in 1920 and 1921.
Thus, the Yankees have won 32 World Series titles in the history of the event. The only other team to win more than twice are the Red Sox (6), Cubs (5), Indians (4), and Cardinals (4).
The Yankees last title was in 2009. They lost to the Philadelphia Phillies in 7 games.
Overall, the Yankees are one of the most successful franchises in baseball history, having more World Series wins than any other team. They've also won more League Championships than any other team as well (22).
In fact, the Yankees are so successful that it's hard to imagine them not being at the top of this list forever. However, there are several other teams that have been more successful over time that aren't included on this list. For example, the San Francisco Giants have more World Series victories than the Yankees but they haven't won as much over time.
The 1927 New York Yankees season was the team's 25th season in the American League. The club ended with a 110-44 record, capturing its sixth pennant and finishing 19 games ahead of the Philadelphia Athletics, who were tied for first or better for the entire season. The Yankees' regular lineup included Hall of Famers Joe DiMaggio at first base and Yogi Berra at third; Phil Rizzuto at second base; and Lefty Grove at the plate. In addition to these stars, the Yankees had several other excellent players including Johnny Lindell, Bill Dickey, Charlie Gehringer, and Ralph Houk. The club's pitching staff was led by All-Stars Herb Pennock and Carl Hubbell. During this season, the Yankees played their home games at Yankee Stadium which they shared with the New York Giants football team. The stadium was built for the 1912 World's Fair but was not opened until March 1st, 2009.
In 1995, when the Baseball Encyclopedia published its first edition, it was widely regarded as the greatest team ever. In 2001, when the book was revised, it was still considered by many to be the greatest team ever. The 1927 Yankees are now known as the "Super Squad," as they were also the only team to win more than 100 games during that era. Their overall record of 110-44 is still the most wins ever recorded by a single team in the history of baseball.
27 World Series titles. The New York Yankees are an American professional baseball team based in the borough of the Bronx in New York City. One of the most famous and successful franchises in all of sports, the Yankees have won a record 27 World Series titles and 40 American League (AL) pennants.
The New York Giants were originally named the New York football Giants because they played their home games at Yankee Stadium, which was also the home stadium of both the New York Yankees and New York Yankees Baseball Club. When the NFL started playing its season now known as "Fall Season" in the late 1930s, the Giants moved into Yankee Stadium for their games. At the time, both teams were owned by Robert K. Frederick who had the rights to name the new league franchise; he chose the word "Giants" after the original New York Football Giants of the NFL. The Yankees adopted their current name at the end of the 1957 season when they switched leagues from the AL to the NL.
New York has hosted the most World Series with 27. It has been predicted that the Yankees will win another World Series this year.
The Yankees won their 13th title in 41 years, sweeping the series in four games. The New York Yankees won the World Series for the second time in a row in 1950, the second of a record five straight victories (1949–1953). The Yanks defeated the Red Sox 4-3 in 10 innings to take home their 13th championship.
After losing the first two games at home, the Yankees came back to win three in a row to take control of the series. In game four at Boston, Joe DiMaggio hit a two-run homer in the first inning and Bill Dickey did the same in the sixth to give the Yanks a quick 3-0 lead. They added another run in the eighth on a George Selkirk single before shutting out the Bums in the ninth for their third victory in a row. The Yanks finished with 11 hits while allowing just four runs off 21 Boston pitching appearances.
This season's series was tied 2-2 after three games but the Yankees took charge by winning three in a row to go up 3-2 in the best-of-seven series. In game four at Boston, Don Larsen threw a perfect game while playing for the Yankees against Whitey Ford. The only batter he allowed to reach base was Vic Raschi who scored on a wild pitch.
