Transcript: Founded in 1903 Signed BABE RUTH Probably the best hitter in all of baseball history-714 home runs. Soon, first baseman Wally Pipp was injured, and another great hitter, LOU GEHRIG, came along. Gehrig played 2,130 games in a row. He was nicknamed The Iron Horse, because he played through many injuries. One day, Lou Gehrig got sick, and he took himself out of the game. Gehrig was diagnosed with a muscular disease that ended his career and life. Another star, JOE DiMAGGIO, joined the team. He broke a record of having hits in 56 cosecutive games. The Bronx Bombers decided to sign another young star, MICKEY MANTLE. He also was a breakout hitter, like the stars before him. After that, slugger ROGER MARIS joined the team. He broke Ruth's single-season home run record Guys like YOGI BERRA, WHITEY FORD and ELSTON HOWARD also gave the team a boost. Soon, stars started retiring. It wasn't until about 10 years later had stars appear again. REGGIE JACKSON came to the Yankees, determined to help carry them to another championship. People like DAVE WINFIELD came in the '80s, and led them to more championship titles. In 1996, present-day stars DEREK JETER, MARIANO RIVERA, JORGE POSADA, and ANDY PETTITE joined the team. The "Core Four" led them to championships in '96, '98, '99, and '00 In 2009, the Yanks won the World Series again, totaling 27. The Yankees have had many stars in the past, and they look forward to their Minor Leaguers like JESUS MONTERO, AUSTIN ROMINE, HECTOR NOESI, EDUARDO NUNEZ, and IVAN NOVA to be Yankee icons in the future. No matter what, the best team in baseball will always be: The New York Yankees
