[edit] 1948 New York Yankees / Franchise: New York Yankees / BR Team Page

The New York Yankees' 1948 season was the 46th season for the Yankees and their 48th overall. The team finished in third place with a record of 94-60, 2.5 games behind the Cleveland Indians and 1.5 games behind the Boston Red Sox. New York was managed by Bucky Harris. The Yankees played at Yankee Stadium.

The fractional games-behind came about due to the frenzied pennant race, which saw the Yankees, Red Sox and Indians all battling it out to the end. The Yankees fell just a little short, and the Red Sox and Indians finished in a tie for first at 96-58. They held a one-game playoff, which counted as part of the regular season, so the Indians' victory raised their record to 97-58, and dropped the Red Sox to 96-59.

The Yankees did not renew Bucky Harris' contract after the season, opting instead to hire Casey Stengel starting in 1949. This move raised some eyebrows, but Stengel had just led the Oakland Oaks to the Pacific Coast League pennant in 1948, demonstrating that with good talent, he had a good chance to succeed. The Yankees were about to begin the most dominating stretch of their long dynasty.
