This Day In New York Yankees History 10/15

On this day in 1923 New York got their first World Series championship of their storied career in the first all New York World Series. The New York Yankees beat the New York Giants in six games with a 6-4 victory. The Yankees scored five runs in the eight inning to clinch the title.

On this day in 1964 Yankees second basemen Bobby Richardson set a World Series record by playing in his 30th consecutive World Series game. Richardson also shares the record for hits at the time with 13, RBI's with 12,  and eight runs scored in the seven game Fall Classic.

On this day in 2001 the Yankees became the first team to ever come from behind a 2-0 series deficit to win a best of five ALDS. The Yankees beat the Oakland A's 5-3 on this day to move on to the ALCS.
