Season Highlights[edit]

The 2000 New York Yankees played their 98th season since moving to New York, NY, and their 100th overall going back to their origins in Baltimore. New York was managed by Joe Torre. The team finished 1st in the AL East with a record of 87-74, 2.5 games ahead of the Boston Red Sox, the poorest record among all of the teams that made it to the postseason (mostly because they lost the last seven games of the season). In the postseason, they reached the World Series and defeated the New York Mets in 5 games to win their 26th World Series title, even though the Mets finished with a better record at 94-68.
