Record: 76-76+0 Finished 6th in American League (1911 AL)
Managed by Hal Chase
Coach: Duke Farrell
Ballpark: Hilltop Park
The 1911 New York Highlanders finished with a total of 76 wins and 76 losses, coming in 6th in the American League.
New York was managed by Hal Chase. Home games were played at Hilltop Park. The alternate and equally unofficial nickname, "Yankees", was being used more and more frequently by the press.
Relations between the New York Highlanders and the enemy New York Giants seemed to be at a boiling point until a fateful April day when a fire destroyed the main portion of the grandstand at the Polo Grounds, the Giants' home field, just a few blocks away (and downhill) from the Hilltop. The Highlanders invited the Giants to play at Hilltop Park for the remainder of the 1911 season. Although the Giants were able to return to their partially-rebuilt home two months later, this good deed would be remembered and returned to the Highlanders two years later.
