Ok, so there must be a whole lot of New York Yankee’s fan out there! Here are a few known facts about the team.

1. They are managed by Joe Torre since 1996. Joseph Paul Torre (that’s his real name, by the way) now ranks 6th in all-time MLB managerial wins. Now one huge credit for the manager is that, he has won them 10 AL East Division titles, 6 AL Pennants and 4 World Series title! Wohoooohhh! Way to go Joe!

2. The team is owned by George Steinbrenner, a very successful businessman who also purchased YES cable network.

3. They have 15 numbers retired, the most in the Major League Baseball.

4. The Yankees made it through the playoffs in 12 straight years.

5. They are in the AL East Division.

6. They have won the AL East for 9 straight years.

7. The team has won 26 World Series titles. Hey! That’s more championships than any other team in any North American sport! That alone is a great accomplishment for the Yankees they can be proud of! (My tongue is out, for those who hate the New York Yankees).

8. They play at the Yankee Stadium in Bronx, New York, but they are building a new stadium this will be ready in 2009.

9. There is a one and only player remaining in MLB, who is allowed to wear number 42 ever again — Mariano Rivera!

10. From 1913-2009, the team won 26 World Championships, 39 Pennants, and 47 Playoff appearances!
