This Day in New York Yankees History 1/9: The Highlanders are Born


On this day in 1903 Baltimore's American League franchise is sold to Frank Farrell and Bill Devery for $18,000 and is moved to New York. The Manhattan team will be known as the New York Highlanders before being renamed the Yankees in 1913.

  1. Babe Ruth the greatest pure hitter ever, followed by Hank Aaron and A-Rod!
    Greatest three guys to play the game? I have no idea!
    In all numbers we rate the players by, I rate A-Rod #1 infielder, Hank Aaron number 2, with Babe Ruth in the number 3 spot because some hit etc were as a pitcher and his true % as an outfielder.
    Babe and Aaron were in the top 5 spots many more categories than A-Rod, so one can say Babe is still the King with Hank very very close...with A-Rod close also!

    Take your pick! Numbers with A-Rod are the best in these modern times.
