Wikipedia, Sept. 30, 2013 (The New York Yankees are an American professional baseball team based in The Bronx borough of New York City that competes in Major League Baseball in the American League's East Division. One of the AL's eight charter franchises, the club was founded in Baltimore, Maryland in 1901 as the Baltimore Orioles. The team moved to New York City in 1903 and became the New York Highlanders [no publications in LC database], before taking the "Yankees" as their official name in 1913. The team is owned by Yankee Global Enterprises, an LLC controlled by the family of George Steinbrenner, who purchased the team in 1973)
