The New York Yankees were not always known by that name. In fact, when the team was formed in 1901, it was known as the Baltimore Orioles. Eventually, a separate organization would adopt that name after the Yankees abandoned it in a move to New York (1903). For the next 10 years, the team now known as “the Yanks” were called the New York Highlanders. It would not be until 1913 that “Yankees” would take over. Ten years after that, the New York Yankees would win their first of 27 World Series titles. The organization has placed 53 into the National Baseball Hall of Fame, with notables like Babe Ruth, Yogi Berra, Lou Gehrig, and Mickey Mantle.
