24/7 Wall St.: Major League Teams Americans Bet On The Most

18 of 24

MLB: 1. New York Yankees

Team value: #1
Attendance 2010: 3,765,807 (the highest)
Pct. change attendance 2001 – 2010: +15.35% (11th biggest increase)

The Bronx Bombers are arguably the most storied franchise in major league sports, and certainly the one with the most wins. Since their start as a the Highlanders in 1903, to their first game as the Yankees in 1913 through today, the team has rarely had a period in its history where it did not have a legitimate chance of winning the major league title. Since the inception of the World Series in 1903, the team has won 27 times, or one in every four series (it played and lost in an additional 13). Since the inception of the wildcard in 1995, the Yankees have made the playoffs every year except one (2007), have been to seven World Series, and won five. The Yankees moved to a brand new stadium in 2009, and christened the new field with yet another World Series win.
