Much to the ire of rival teams, and a few teams that have become rivals because of this, the New York Yankees have been a global baseball brand for years. Go to a Yankees away game, and you will definitely see some pinstripe support, sometimes more support than the home team (such as with the Tampa Bay Rays.)
But where did the New York Yankees really come from? If you thought “New York,” not only would you be wrong but surprisingly wrong. Before the Yankees began their dynasty of 27 Word Series championships and counting, they hailed from one of their rival cities. Take a look at The Mapped Travels of MLB Franchises from CBS Local’s Man Cave Daily to see the road trip that landed the Yankees in New York, in glorious GIF form.
