The Top 10 Greatest New York Yankees of All-Time

The New York Yankees is one of the most successful and iconic franchises in the history of sports. With a rich history dating back over a century, the Yankees have boasted some of the greatest players to ever grace the baseball diamond. From Babe Ruth to Derek Jeter, the Yankees have had an impressive roster of talent throughout the years. In this article, we will explore the top 10 greatest New York Yankees of all time, celebrating their contributions to the team and their impact on the game.

1. Babe Ruth

No list of the greatest Yankees would be complete without "The Sultan of Swat" himself, Babe Ruth. Ruth revolutionized the game of baseball with his incredible power hitting and charismatic personality. He spent 15 seasons with the Yankees, during which he won four World Series titles and set numerous records. Ruth's impact on the Yankees and the sport as a whole cannot be overstated.

2. Lou Gehrig

Lou Gehrig is often remembered for his tragic battle with ALS, but his accomplishments on the baseball field are equally remarkable. Gehrig was a key member of the Yankees' legendary Murderers' Row lineup, alongside Babe Ruth. He was a seven-time All-Star, a two-time Most Valuable Player, and won six World Series championships with the Yankees. Gehrig's durability and consistency made him one of the greatest first basemen of all time.

3. Joe DiMaggio

Known as "The Yankee Clipper," Joe DiMaggio was a true legend of the game. DiMaggio's 56-game hitting streak, a record that still stands today, is a testament to his incredible talent. He won nine World Series titles during his career, all with the Yankees, and was a three-time MVP. DiMaggio's graceful style of play and clutch performances made him a fan favorite and one of the greatest center fielders in baseball history.

4. Mickey Mantle

Mickey Mantle was a dynamic player who possessed both power and speed. He spent his entire 18-year career with the Yankees, during which he won seven World Series titles and three MVP awards. Mantle was known for his prodigious home runs, including a 565-foot blast that still holds the record as the longest home run ever hit in a major league game. Despite battling injuries throughout his career, Mantle's impact on the Yankees was undeniable.

5. Derek Jeter

Derek Jeter is undoubtedly one of the most beloved Yankees of all time. Known for his leadership, clutch performances, and remarkable consistency, Jeter spent his entire 20-year career with the team. He won five World Series titles, was a 14-time All-Star, and collected over 3,000 hits. Jeter's iconic "Captain" status and his ability to come through in the biggest moments solidified his place among the Yankees' all-time greats.

6. Yogi Berra

Yogi Berra was not only a fantastic catcher but also one of the most quotable players in baseball history. Berra won a staggering 10 World Series titles as a player, the most in MLB history. He was a three-time MVP and a 15-time All-Star. Berra's ability to handle pitchers and his clutch hitting made him an integral part of the Yankees' success during his career.

7. Mariano Rivera

Considered by many to be the greatest closer in baseball history, Mariano Rivera dominated the ninth inning for the Yankees for nearly two decades. Rivera's signature cut fastball was nearly unhittable, and he holds the MLB record for career saves with 652. He played a crucial role in the Yankees' five World Series championships and was a 13-time All-Star. Rivera's calm demeanor and unwavering consistency made him a fan favorite and a true legend.

8. Whitey Ford

Whitey Ford, nicknamed "The Chairman of the Board," was the Yankees' ace pitcher during the 1950s and 1960s. He won six World Series titles with the team and was a 10-time All-Star. Ford's impeccable control and ability to pitch in big games made him one of the greatest left-handed pitchers of all time. His career ERA of 2.75 is a testament to his skill and dominance on the mound.

9. Reggie Jackson

Reggie Jackson, also known as "Mr. October," earned his nickname for his clutch performances in the postseason. He played for the Yankees from 1977 to 1981, winning two World Series titles with the team. Jackson's power-hitting prowess was on full display during the 1977 World Series when he hit three home runs in a single game. His ability to rise to the occasion in big moments cemented his legacy as one of the greatest Yankees of all time.

10. Don Mattingly

Don Mattingly, affectionately known as "Donnie Baseball," was a fan favorite during his 14-year career with the Yankees. Mattingly won the American League MVP award in 1985 and was a six-time All-Star. He was known for his smooth swing and exceptional defense at first base. Although he never won a World Series, Mattingly's impact on the Yankees and his consistent excellence earn him a spot on this list.

The New York Yankees have been fortunate to have some of the greatest players in the history of baseball wear their pinstripes. From Babe Ruth to Derek Jeter, these players left an indelible mark on the game and the franchise. Their achievements, both individually and as a team, solidify their place as the top 10 greatest New York Yankees of all time.
