The New York Yankees' 2000 season was the 98th season for the Yankees in New York, and their 100th overall going back to their origins in Baltimore. New York was managed by Joe Torre. The team finished 1st in the AL East with a record of 87-74, 2.5 games ahead of the Boston Red Sox, the lowest of all the teams that made it to the playoffs (mostly because they lost the last seven games of the season). In the playoffs, they got to the World Series and defeated the New York Mets in 5 games to win their 26th World Series title.
