I simply love the Yankees and everything about them, that is why I always take the time to know what is and what’s not about the team. Just because, I’d love to share this to everyone who adores them like I do.

What’s not to love? They are simply the best, the best team, the best players and the best uniform as well. Blue is calm, calm and then wild when they hit it big and make the fans go crazy.

I don’t know why this should thrill me so, but it does. I think, just the way it is when you root for a team.  I recently bought a Yankees cap and I wear it all the time – which can be very nice. People would just acknowledge you and you get “HI’s” and “HELLO’s” because they are a Yankee fan too!

Anyhow, another trivia question! When did the New York Yankees started playing baseball? The team actually started in 1901. So people, its 1901! Ok, for those who are wondering why they were called the

 Although they played as the “Baltimore Orioles” in 1901 and 1902 under the management of John McGraw and then later became the “New York Highlanders” from 1903 to 1912. They weren’t officially the “New York Yankees” until 1913.

Oh, and another fact, for those who are wondering why they were called the “Orioles” then, it was because the plans for putting up a New York team was blocked by the National League’s New York Giant who had enough political power before to keep them out. That is why, the  next best thing was to put it up in Baltimore, Maryland.

So add that up to your New York Yankees “need-to-know” trivia’s!
