The New York Yankees played at the Polo Grounds in 1920, and had ahome attendance of 1,289,422. The Polo Grounds was home to the New York Giants, and the Yankees were just tenants. The Yankees were out drawing the Giants in attendance over the next couple of years, and the Giants wanted the Yankees out, forcing the Yankees to build Yankees Stadium.

Why do baseball player wear number on the back of their shirt?

The New York Yankees started putting numbers on the back of there player's jerseys in the 1920s so that fans can easily identify the players' name by referring to a scorecard that identified the players. Soon, all teams started putting numbers on their players' jerseys. Names didn't come on the players' jerseys until much later.

Did the New York Yankees buy the World Series?

The New York Yankees did NOT buy the World Series. There are opinions, but these are facts. The Yankees gain lots of money form the fan booth, wich provides 50,000+ fans every single game. That many fans come because the Yankees are a successful team and win alot of games, wich teams are suppose to shoot for. Other teams, are not as successful as the Yankees, so wich leads to less fans to come see them, less money. It may seem the Yankees are "buying" because they get alot of money. They get it from wining. The Yankees work hard every game to win, and the more you win, the more fans, the more money. George Stienbrenner the Yankees owner, cares about his great Yankees. When he receives fan booth money, he doesn't keep it to himself. When he think his team (Yankees) need an improvement, he goes out there and makes an improvement buy picking up a player, (wich is what your suppose to do). This may seem like the Yankees are "buying" because other major league baseball teams owner's keep the money to themsleves and don't use it to help the team like the Yankees George Steinbrenner does help. If other teams owner would help the team by using their fan booth money to make an improvement, they would be just like the Yankees, and be in contention with them. The decision by owners keeping it to themselves hurts their team by, losing more, gaining lesser fans every game, gaining less fan booth, and less money. This looks like the Yankees are buying because they have a lot of money, because their owners keep the money to themselves, and make people think that they are broke, and stink. Everyone would have the same amount of money as the Yankees if they would do what their suppose to do, and help the team. The Yankees have been dominate since 1923 winning 27 championships, the most in the world. They have done it by great leadership by Lou Gehrig, Don Mattingly, Thurman Munson, Babe Ruth, Derek Jeter and many more. They have great talent, great personalities, and are a very successful team, who have been made by their great owner George Steinbrenner, now in his late 80's. The Yankees main goal is to win, and be loved by fans, which makes them the #1 most liked team in America. This team will never go down without a fight, and the Yankees ghosts will always be there. (P.S, the Yankees also pay their extra money to the other 10 lower market teams, to help them out. That shows the great personality, and care that the Yankees have.) Team on the 20th century, 2009 champs, and forever lasting team, and players, and years that will never be forgotten for true fans. I am a true Yankees fan, and very, very proud to be one.
