New York Yankeesis perhaps the most popular baseball team in the world. Playing in the state of New York certainly helps the cause. Throughout the entire history of the Yankees, they have won a total of 27 World Series out of 40 appearances. The 27 titles won by The Yanks is currently at the top of the all-time list. Having so much dominance in the baseball world, there is no doubt why they are having so much popularity.
The last title of The Bronx Bombers came last 2009 when they edged out the Philadelphia Phillies. In the recently concluded season though, New York had a disappointing year. Holding home court advantage during the American League Division Series over the Detroit Tigers, the Yankees lost at home in the deciding game of the series. It wasn’t really a bad year for The Yanks, though, when they won the AL East Division title. With the stinging defeat in last year’s postseason, the players as well as the owners of New York Yankees tickets can’t wait for the upcoming season to start.
New York’s regular season home opener for the 2012 season would on the road against Tampa Bay Rays. Owners of New York Yankees tickets would be able catch a glimpse of their team playing at the Yankee Stadium for the first time in the new season on April 13 when their beloved Yankees go up against the Los Angeles Angels. Yankee fans, meanwhile, would not have to wait until April to see their team play. Their first preseason game would be on March 2 against the USF Bulls. This game is part of their Spring Training. Their last preseason game would be against in-state rival, the New York Mets on April 4.
During this current offseason, some Yankee players as well as a member of the coaching staff were given recognition. Though they weren’t able to bag their respective awards, they still cracked the top five when the votes were casted. Their manager, Joe Girardi was number five in the AL Manager of the Year voting. He received 14 points from Baseball Writers’ Association of America. Girardi received three 2nd place votes and five 3rd place votes. Yankees’ prized rookie Ivan Nova placed fourth in the 2011 AL Rookie of the Year voting after garnering 30 points. Nova had one 1st place votes, five 2nd place votes, and 10 3rd place votes. Pitcher CC Sabathia also had a decent year for The Yanks. He finished fourth in the 2011 AL CY Young Award voting. Sabathia gained a total of 63 points from the BWAA. He had five 2nd place votes and seven 3rd place votes.
This offseason, New York made several moves to retain some of the core players from last year’s roster. Perhaps the most critical move they made was re-signing Sabathia to a five-year contract. They also exercised their 2012 options to Robinson Cano and Nick Swisher.
