A Look Inside the Yankees’ WS Teams

The 4 most important defensive positions on the baseball diamond are C, 2B, SS, and CF. I will look at the 39 Yankees teams that were in the WS and see how many of those positions were filled by homegrown players. The Yankees have won 26 of those. Since the franchise became a team in 1901 as the Baltimore Orioles there have been 104 WS. The WS didn’t start until 1903 and in 1904 and 1994 the WS was cancelled. That means the Yankees have been in 37.5% of the WS and have won 25% of them. First, I will look the 39 teams that went to the WS and then I will look at the 26 championship teams.

Here are the 39 WS teams. 1 team filled 0 positions with homegrown players. 6 teams filled 1 position with homegrown players. 1 team filled 2 positions with homegrown players. 8 teams filled 3 positions with homegrown players. 23 teams filled 4 positions with homegrown players.

Here are the 26 WS championship teams. 0 teams filled 0 positions with homegrown players. 3 teams filled 1 position with homegrown players. 1 team filled 2 positions with homegrown players. 6 teams filled 3 positions with homegrown players. 16 teams filled 4 positions with homegrown players.
