Yankees Postseason History Recap: 1996


The Yankees have had a lot of huge postseason moments and series and they have won a total of 27 World Series Championships. Tonight we're going to recap one of those World Series Championships and the first World Series I ever saw as a Yankees fan, the 1996 World Series. Derek Jeter, Andy Pettitte, Mariano Rivera, Bernie Williams, John Wetteland, Jim Leyritz and so much clutch and team building against the pitching juggernauts of the Atlanta Braves.

The Yankees got down in the series 2-0 at home with three huge games in Atlanta looming. It didn't look good for the Bronx Bombers but they went down to Atlanta and took three games in a row in dramatic fashion setting up a decisive Game Six in the Bronx. You can watch that entire game above and watch the Yankees get back on top of the baseball world.

Enjoy.
