Abstract (Document Summary)

It was the 1927 outfit, in particular, that was almost unfair in its dominance. The Yanks won the AL by 19 games with a 110-44 record (that's .714 baseball), thanks to [Babe Ruth]'s 60 home runs (more than every other AL team), [Lou Gehrig]'s unheralded 47 homers (more than four AL teams) and four pitchers who won 18 or more games (Waite Hoyt, Urban Shocker, [Herb Pennock] and Wilcy Moore). It was the pinnacle of a dynasty and the crowning moment of an era that changed the franchise.

[Earle Combs], [Bob Meusel], Lou Gehrig and Babe Ruth pose in September of their incredible 1927 campaign. Ruth hit 60 homers and gehrig drove in 175 runs, both major-league records at the time. Earle Combs smacks a leadoff single against the Philadelphia Athletics on Sept. 8, 1928 at the Stadium. Manager [Miller Huggins] confers wtih owner Col. Jacob Ruppert.
