[edit] 1981 New York Yankees / Franchise: New York Yankees / BR Team Page

The New York Yankees' 1981 season was the 79th season for the Yankees. The team finished in first place in the American League Eastern Division for the first half of the strike-shortened season with a 34-22 record, but finished fifth in the second half with a 25-26 record, for an overall record of 59-48. The season was suspended for 50 days due to the infamous 1981 players strike and the league chose as its playoff teams the division winners from the first and second halves of the season, respectively.

In the ALDS, which were necessitated by the split-season format, the yankees beat the Milwaukee Brewers, 3 games to 2. In the ALCS, the Yankees swept the Oakland Athletics; Graig Nettles was named the Most Valuable Player in the Series. However, the Yankees lost in the World Series in 6 games to the Los Angeles Dodgers. New York was managed by Gene Michael and Bob Lemon. The Yankees played at Yankee Stadium.
