The New York Yankees are a professional Baseball team, based in the New York City borough of the Bronx. A member of the Major League Baseball's American League, the club was originally founded in Baltimore, Maryland in 1901, and moved to New York City in 1903 (where they were renamed the Yankees in 1913). From 1923 to 2008 the Yankees played in Yankee Stadium, which was replaced with the new Yankee Stadium in 2009.

In the New York area, their games are available on the Yankees Entertainment and Sports Network.

Yankees players that have appeared with the Muppets include Hideki Matsui and Dave Winfield, as well as former manager Joe Torre. Elmo appeared at an exhibition game between the New York Yankees and the Yomiuri Giants at the Tokyo Dome on March 28, 2004.
