The New York Yankees are a professional baseball team based in The Bronx, New York. They compete in Major League Baseball (MLB) in the American League’s East Division. One of the American League’s eight charter franchises, the club was founded in Baltimore, Maryland, in 1901 as the Baltimore Orioles and moved to New York City in 1903 as the New York Highlanders before becoming the Yankees in 1913. From 1923 to 2008, the Yankees’ home ballpark was Yankee Stadium; in 2009, they moved into a new ballpark, also called Yankee Stadium. The Yankees have won 27 World Series championships and 40 American League pennants, both MLB records. Forty-three Yankees players and eleven Yankees managers have been inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame, including Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, and Yogi Berra. The Yankees have garnered widespread popularity and a dedicated fan base. In pursuit of winning championships, the franchise has utilized a large payroll to recruit talent, particularly under former owner George Steinbrenner. The Yankees’ rivalry with the Boston Red Sox is regarded as one of the most famous in North American professional sports. To support the Yankees and expand their media coverage, the dedicated television channel YES Network was launched in 2002. Since acquiring Babe Ruth in 1920, the Yankees have appeared in the World Series in every decade since the 1920s. Yankee Stadium is a stadium located in the South Bronx in New York City. It is the home ballpark for the New York Yankees, one of the city’s Major League Baseball (MLB) franchises. It opened at the beginning of the 2009 MLB season as a replacement for the team’s previous home, the original Yankee Stadium, which opened in 1923 and closed in 2008. The new ballpark was constructed across the street, north-northeast of the 1923 Yankee Stadium, on the former site of Macombs Dam Park. The ballpark opened April 2, 2009, when the Yankees hosted a workout day in front of fans from the Bronx community. The first game at the new Yankee Stadium was a pre-season exhibition game against the Chicago Cubs played on April 3, 2009, which the Yankees won 7–4. The first regular season game was played on April 16, a 10–2 Yankee loss to the Cleveland Indians. Much of the stadium incorporates design elements from the previous Yankee Stadium, thus paying homage to Yankee history. Although stadium construction began in August 2006, the project of building a new stadium for the Yankees is one that spanned many years and faced many controversies. The stadium was built on what had been 24 acres of public parkland. Replacement baseball fields opened in April 2012. Also controversial was the price tag of $1.5 billion, which makes it not only the most expensive baseball stadium ever built, but the second-most expensive stadium of any kind (after MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey
