New York Baseball Teams
The New York Mets
The New York Mets are an American professional baseball team based in the New York City borough of Queens. The Mets compete in Major League Baseball as a member of the National League East division. They are one of two major league clubs based in New York City, the other being the American League’s New York Yankees.
One of baseball’s first expansion teams, the Mets were founded in 1962 to replace New York’s departed NL teams, the Brooklyn Dodgers and the New York Giants. The team’s colors evoke the blue of the Dodgers and the orange of the Giants. Throughout the 60-year history of the franchise, they have only won two World Series titles.
The New York Yankees
The New York Yankees are an American professional baseball team based in the New York City borough of The Bronx. The Yankees compete in Major League Baseball as a member club of the American League East division. Arguably one of the most successful professional sports teams in the United States, the Yankees have won more titles than any other franchise in the four major North American sports leagues.
The Yankees are the second-highest valued sports franchise in the world with an estimated value in 2022 of approximately $6 billion. They began playing in 1901 and have had 44 players and 11 managers inducted into the hall of fame.
