Greatest New York Yankees


The Top Ten

1 Babe Ruth Babe Ruth George Herman Ruth Jr., better known as Babe Ruth, was an American professional baseball player whose career in Major League Baseball spanned 22 seasons, from 1914 through 1935.

Hit 50 homers in one season until roger maris smoked that record, still the best yankee

2 Lou Gehrig

He was the true heart of the 1920s-30s Yankees. May not get the love the Babe did but was every bit as good a player and one of the classiest people to ever play the game.

3 Derek Jeter

A prime example of what a pro athlete is supposed to stand for. He is classy, a born leader, and a heck of a hitter to boot.

the perfect example of what it means to be a yankee - crazyeyes56

He has more hits than any yankee

4 Mickey Mantle

Derek Jeter better than "The Mick? " Let's get real people!

Number 1, if he wasnt injured. He would have. Been the best home run hitter of all time no doubt in my mind that he would be the number 1 homr run hitter ever and barry bonds wouldn't have even been close

5 Joe Dimaggio

Why the hell is DiMaggio only 9th?! He's right up there with Babe Ruth and Mickey Mantle. Joltin Joe is a true legend!

Joe D ranks higher than 10th. He should be in the top three.

6 Yogi Berra
7 Mariano Rivera
8 Thurman Munson
9 Alex Rodriguez Alex Rodriguez



10 Whitey Ford

The Contenders

11 Don Larsen
12 Reggie Jackson

I met him at a car show he's really cool and he's Mr October which is a very important month - Sabbath

13 Don Mattingly

He is a legend

14 Bucky Dent
15 Robinson Cano

Its possible he might get to the 3,000 hit club. If so, he's a sure hall of gamer.
