New York Yankees' origins
The Yankees were originally known as the Baltimore Orioles back in 1901, but when the franchise moved to New York, two years later, they changed their name taking on the new moniker of the New York Highlanders. From 1913, the team adopted the new name of the "Yankees" and has remained steadfast ever since. More than a hundred years later, the team has developed into one of the most popular sports teams in the world. And not just that: the New York Yankees are by far the most successful baseball team in the world, boasting an impressive 27 World Series trophies and 40 American League wins to prove it.
In addition to their success, the team's insignia has become an icon in itself, with the logo featuring on T-Shirts, hats, backpacks across the globe. Suffice to say official Yankees' merchandise are highly sought after the world over, unsurprising considering the logo's own history with the Yankees, embodying everything that has made New York the city we now know today. It is with this in mind, that Sports fans (not just baseball lovers) all over the world, have admitted wishes to see this incredible team play at the iconic Yankee Stadium.
New York Yankees' Yanee Stadium
Speaking of their stadium, Yankee Stadium actually stands as their fifth ballpark, and in turn their second iteration of the Yankee Stadium. Before they adopted their Yankees moniker, the team were mostly active in Hilltop Park, though with a new name came a new venue. Moving to Polo Grounds in 1913, the team remained there for a good decade, before moving to their first Yankee Stadium. Spending a year at Shea Stadium due to renovations, they moved back to a new and improved Yankee Stadium in 1976. There the team remained until 2009, when a new Yankee Stadium was built in the Bronx, to cater significantly to Yankee's ever-increasing fanbase. An interesting fact is that the construction costs amounted to an impressive 1.5 billion dollars, thus making the new stadium of the Yankees the most expensive sporting venue in the world.
