The team colors are Navy Blue, White and Gray. The home
uniform is white with distinctive pinstripes and a navy blue interlocking "NY"
at the chest. The away uniform is gray with a navy blue "NEW YORK" written
across the chest. The player number is on the back of the uniform jersey, and is
not accompanied by the player name. A navy blue cap with a white interlocking
"NY" logo is worn with both uniforms.
In 1929, the New York Yankees became the first team to
make numbers a permanent part of the uniform.
Many companies have created replica Yankee jerseys and
other apparel with the player name above the number on the back for fans to
purchase, but no official Yankee uniform has ever had a name on the back.
The home uniform has been the same (apart from minor
changes) since 1936 – longer than any current uniform design in Major League
Baseball – although patches commemorating milestones or special events may be
worn for all or part of a season. The team will occasionally wear a black
armband on the left sleeve, usually in honor of a Yankee great that died (in the
case of some players, his number is frequently sewn above the armband).
In 1990, the Yankees wore a #1 patch on their left sleeve
in tribute to Billy Martin, who died in a car crash on Christmas Day of 1989. It
was the first time the Yankees paid tribute to a retired legend by putting their
jersey number on their left sleeve. They did the same for Mickey Mantle in 1995,
Joe DiMaggio in 1999, Phil Rizzuto in 2007 and Yogi Berra in late 2015.
Athletes as well as fans enjoy the honor of wearing a
Yankees shirt. Tops with team logos, names, or numbers, come in many
A team jersey as used in sport is a
shirt worn by a member of a team, typically depicting the athlete's name and
team number as well as the logotype of the team or corporate sponsor. A
baseball jersey is usually a button up shirt. Fans have the opportunity to
purchase similar shirts.
A baseball uniform is a type of uniform worn by baseball
players. Most baseball uniforms have the names and uniform numbers of players
who wear them, usually on the backs of the uniforms to distinguish players from
each other. Baseball shirts (jerseys), pants, shoes, socks, caps, and gloves are
parts of baseball uniforms. Most uniforms have different logos and colors to aid
players, officials, and spectators in distinguishing the two teams from each
other and the officials.
About the New York Yankees Team Logo for Jerseys and Hats
Throughout much of their tenure as the Highlanders, the
logo was variations of a stylized N and Y, which lay separately on either side
of the jersey's breast. In 1905, the two locked for one season, but not in the
way used today. It wasn't until 1909 that the team changed to the familiar
interlocking NY that would be the team logo long after the team became known as
the Yankees, and would continue to be the cap insignia until today. The
interlocking NY was originally designed by Tiffany & Co. and struck on a medal
of honor presented in 1877 to John McDowell, a NYC police officer shot in the
line of duty.
The primary logo, created in 1947 by sports artist Henry
Alonzo Keller, consists of "Yankees" against a baseball, written in red script
with a red bat forming the vertical line of the K, an Uncle Sam hat hanging from
the barrel. The logo was slightly changed over the years, with the current
version first appearing in the 1970s.
The interlocking NY has varied greatly, and there are
currently three major versions in use. The first is the cap insignia, in which
the N and Y are of about the same size and unadorned. The second is the logo on
the breast of the home jersey. This logo first appeared there in 1912, continued
through the 1913 renaming to the New York Yankees, and after disappearing in
1917, returned for good in 1936, although there have been many small but
apparent changes through the years. In the jersey logo, the Y is larger, the
letters more blocky, and the curves more exaggerated. The third is the print
logo which is used extensively in marketing, is painted behind home plate at the
Stadium, and appears on the team's batting helmets. The N is larger and more
curved, and the letters have large serifs at the end.
The Yankees use a block letter "NEW YORK" wordmark on the
gray road uniform which has also become emblematic. There is also a print
version of the full name, which is of a more fanciful script than the name
appears in the team logo.
Did you know that coaches need to wear team jerseys as
well? In contrast to many other team sports, baseball managers and coaches
generally wear their team's uniforms; coaches must be in uniform in order to be
allowed on the field to confer with players during a game.
