New York Yankees Postseason History
A team that is synonymous with the Major League Baseball postseason, the New York Yankees are one of the most prolific teams in all of sports when it comes to winning championships. With so many success stories coming from their performances in October, it is no surprise that there are a ton of individual moments that spring to mind when thinking about the team competing in the playoffs.
Included in some of those memorable moments have been their games against their bitter rivals in the Boston Red Sox. As two of the best teams in the American League, the Yankees and Red Sox have often played to determine who would represent the American League in the World Series. And with so much on the line, the teams have time and time again delivered incredible contests.
Perhaps the most memorable moment for the Yankees against the Red Sox in the playoffs came in the 2003 American League Championship Series. The Yankees and Red Sox went seven games in that series, with the Red Sox jumping ahead in the early stages of that deciding game. But a massive comeback by the Yankees was capped in the 11th inning with a solo home run by Aaron Boone off of Tim Wakefield. The home run sent the Yankees to the World Series and sent the Yankee Stadium crowd into delirium.
Looking further back, the Yankees have had plenty of other iconic playoff performances that have enthralled baseball fans around the world. Reggie Jackson was the perfect example during the 1977 World Series, when he belted three home runs on three pitches against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The performance earned Jackson the title of Mr. October. The nickname Mr. October was later called back when Derek Jeter’s game winning home run in the 2001 World Series against the Arizona Diamondbacks took place just after midnight on November 1, earning him the nickname Mr. November.
Speaking of great Yankee performances against the Dodgers, Don Larsen threw a perfect game against the Dodgers in Game Five of the 1956 World Series. Larsen’s performance is still the gold standard for all pitching performances in the World Series, and one that may never be equaled given how rare perfect games are and how good the hitters are in Major League Baseball.
