New York Yankees: The 2010s in review (2015-2019)
By Ryan Touhey
Another decade in Yankees history has come to a close. While we start the next one, let’s revisit the last few seasons first.
The first half of the 2010s marked the end of an era in the history of the New York Yankees, with many icons hanging up their caps and gloves and calling it a career. All the while, the team remained good, but not good enough to win the World Series.
The second half of the decade would see the emergence of fresh young talent, a changing of the guard, personal records, painful memories and a few more stars writing the last chapter of their career.
There were many moments that occurred in the five-year span (2015-19) that people will look back on and remember where they were. Through it all, each year, the Yankees always proved to the rest of baseball that even when they are down, you can never count them out.
Different people donned and took off the pinstripes but each of them seemed to have played at least one important role in keeping the winning tradition alive and well in the Bronx. They all also appeared to have played with a little bit more heart and determination and seemed to have found a little spark when they stepped out onto the Yankee Stadium grass and took center stage.
It’s because of the reputation of the organization and the expectations the fanbase has that drives any Yankee ballplayer to give it their all each and every day. The history and tradition both remain rich and fresh and will continue to do so for years to come.
So without further ado, it’s time to look at the New York Yankees from 2015 to 2019.
