New York Yankees: The Official Site
It's always a big game when the Yankees come to your hometown. Now you have the chance to visit the Yankees' home on their Web site. You can read a timeline history of the franchise, then jump back into the present and study the 2001 schedule and roster. A fascinating feature chronicles the rivalry between the Yankees and the Boston Red Sox, and additional stories — all illustrated with great baseball photos — report on player statistics, trades, even who's on the injured list. And if you happen to root for someone other than the Yanks, you can link to a site just like this one for every other team in the big leagues!
