With the biggest brand in all of baseball and one of the most recognizable names in the entire sports world, the Yankees always fill the stands and attract tons of baseball bettors.
New York Yankees Franchise History
New York joined the American League in 1903 as the Highlanders and retained that name until switching to the New York Yankees in 1913.
A decade after the name change, the Yankees won their first World Series and never looked back. Prior to the franchise’s first title, it acquired superstar Babe Ruth from the Red Sox. Ruth played an integral role in the Yankees’ first four championships.
Between 1923 and 1962, the Yankees won 20 World Series titles, a completely unprecedented feat in Major League Baseball. Throughout the team’s many championship runs, Hall of Famers dominated in New York.
The Yankees boast perhaps the most impressive list of stars that includes players like Ruth, Gehrig, Mantle, DiMaggio, Jeter, Rivera, and many more.
After the Yankees’ early dominance, they captured two more titles in the ‘70s and another four in the ‘90s. In 2009, Derek Jeter led the Yankees to their 27th World Series trophy, the most in Major League Baseball history by a longshot.
Betting on the Yankees in New York
Retail sports betting went live in New York in 2019, but mobile sports betting lagged behind. In 2021, the Empire State legalized mobile sports betting, and it has paid off in a big way.
