Recapping Yankees Postseason History: 2001


2001. What a year. What a year not only for baseball but for the entire country of the United States. Who can forget that day on September 11th when our freedom was tested for the first time in most of our lifetime’s and who could forget every day since it happened. The world, and specifically the city of New York, needed baseball and the Yankees were there to deliver.

The 2001 World Series between the Yankees and the Arizona Diamondbacks was the greatest World Series of all-time in my opinion and I cannot see the amount of drama, hype and flat out entertaining baseball that was in that series being topped any time soon. The walk off hits, the clutch home runs and the epic pitching performances by both sides. Mr. November. The Yankee Stadium crowd as they cheered Paul O’Neill off the field in the Bronx for the final time.


So many memories and one memory that we all want to forget. The loss.
