New York Yankees Baseball Betting history

No pro team or college team in MLB betting or any sport can boast or top the rich tradition of excellence and color in baseball betting that the New York Yankees have.

Success? How about twenty-six world championships, thirty-nine World Series appearances, fourteen division titles, and a pair of wild cards just for kicks! This baseball betting record of dominance and excellence was built with the help of forty Hall of Famers! A total of twenty pin stripers have won the MVP award while eleven more have won the baseball betting World Series MVP!

The first legendary edition of the Yankees was in the 1920s and 30s with names such as Babe Ruth, Joe DiMaggio, and Lou Gehrig. New York won eight baseball betting World Series during this span. From 1941-47 New York took three more MLB betting world titles. Next, came the Casey Stengel era as the manager led the Yankees to seven baseball betting world titles during 1948-60, including five-straight from 1949-53. Then from 1961-64 the Yankees won the pennant each baseball betting season!

The phenomenal Mickey Mantle dominated much of this era.

After an unusually quiet era of mediocrity, new owner George Steinbrenner bought, or brought the Yankees back to glory as in 1976 they began a new era of dominance and greatness that culminated in back-to-back baseball betting world titles in 1977-78. This team was led by superstar Reggie Jackson, with a strong supporting cast, and combined excellence with color and controversy keeping itself on the front pages throughout the year.

After another quiet spell in which Steinbrenner was suspended, “The Boss” returned to lead yet another Yankee revival as the Bronx Bombers took baseball betting world titles in 1996, 1998, 1999, and 2000. Steinbrenner, along with manager Joe Torre, has maintained a level of consistency and excellence since his return from banishment. While the Yankees have taken advantage of baseball's inept leadership regarding competitive balance and economic disparity issues that is more the fault of the commissioner and his “leadership” rather than any fault of the pinstripers.

With such a tradition rich history, the Yankees can boast loyal legions of baseball betting fans throughout the world and are one of the most popular teams for MLB betting fans to wager on.
