The New York Yankees are the most successful franchise in MLB.
They have won 27 World Series championships, many more than the second-placed team.
Unfortunately for them, they haven’t done much winning in the last decade, at least not Fall Classics.
They always find a way to be competitive and finish with a winning record, often making the postseason.
They haven’t won it all since 2009, though.
Yankees fans, however, are particularly open to reminiscing better times, particularly those that they grew up watching and enjoying.
For the current younger generation of fans, our grandparents lived to see Joe DiMaggio, Yogi Berra, Mickey Mantle, and Whitey Ford.
Our parents enjoyed Reggie Jackson, Ron Guidry, Don Mattingly, and others.
If you are over 35 or around that age, chances are that you saw Derek Jeter, Andy Pettitte, Jorge Posada, Tino Martinez, Roger Clemens, and others dominate the late-90s and early-2000s.
Even young fans remember a lot about the 2009 team that won the title.
To re-live all these moments, ESPN is preparing something special.
“ESPN announced it is working on an eight-part documentary series titled ‘The Yankees Win.’ The documentary will focus on the Yankees’ success including interviews and some never-before-seen footage,” The Sporting News tweeted.

The last really successful period in Yankees history was between 1996 and 2003, and included six trips to the World Series and four wins.
Before that, they had success in nearly all decades since the 1920s, except for the eighties.
Let’s see what the documentary is about, but we are sure Yankees fans are certainly going to enjoy it.
There are too many funny, thrilling, and exciting moments in their history for them not to.NEXT: Gerrit Cole Headlines An Elite 2023 Projection
