The Bronx Bombers is a nickname commonly given to the New York Yankees. The name dates back to the 1920s and refers to the location of Yankee Stadium, in the Bronx section of New York City, and to the team's line-up laden with power hitters such as Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig.

The nickname has stuck through the years and is still commonly used in the 21st century.
