New York Yankees Tickets
The New York Yankees began in Baltimore, Maryland, in 1901. They were among the American Leagues original eight franchises. They moved to NYC in 1903 and were renamed the Yankees in 1913. They played in Yankee Stadium for 85 years before relocating to the new Yankee Stadium in 2008. The Yankees have won 40 American League titles and 27 World Series Championships-the most of any team. A total of 54 former Yankee players and managers are in the Baseball Hall of Fame, with such icons as Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris, and Whitey Ford among them.
Yankee Stadium, Home to the New York Yankees
The new Yankee Stadium, which opened in 2009, takes the place of the previous history-filled Yankee Stadium. The first game was an exhibition contest between the New York Yankees and the Chicago Cubs on April 3. On April 16, the Yankees lost their first regular season game in their new home to the Cleveland Indians. Yankee Stadium cost $1.5 billion to build on 24 acres of previous parkland. The stadium boasts a scoreboard that covers 5,925 square feet, along with 1,100 high-definition monitors. Theres also a Hard Rock Café and over 130 concession stands.

The Yankees share a fierce division rivalry with the Boston Red Sox and an in-town rivalry with the National League's New York Mets.
New York Yankees 2012 Team Outlook
The profligate New York Yankees had one thing on their mind this offseason: improve the starting rotation. Other than the stalwart CC Sabathia, the starting rotation of the Yankees was a bit of a mess in 2011. Freddy Garcia and Bartolo Colon were surprisingly effective, but neither pitcher was a long-term solution. Phil Hughes took a step backwards in his development, and A.J. Burnett was hardly a reliable option. As such, the Yankees signed free agent Hiroki Kuroda and traded away Jesus Montero, their top prospect, to the Seattle Mariners for the promising pitcher Michael Pineda. This should solidify their rotation, which will be helped by the prolific offensive numbers the Yankees put up every year. As always, the Yankees will be a threat to reach the World Series in 2012.
