1912 New York Highlanders season

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The 1912 New York Highlanders season was the team's tenth. It was the final season for the "Highlanders" nickname, before officially adopting the already more common "Yankees" name. It was also their final season playing their home games at Hilltop Park. The team finished with a total of 50 wins and 102 losses, coming in 8th, last place in the American League. The club was managed by Harry Wolverton. The New York franchise would not finish in last place again until the 1966 season. To date, this remains the second and last 100-loss season in Yankees history, the other being a few years prior in 1908. After previously appearing on the team's caps, jackets, and even the sleeves of the uniform, this was the first season that the famous "NY" logo would appear on the front of the jerseys.

Regular season

Logo and uniforms

For 1912, the curving "NY" migrated from the sleeve to its now-familiar spot on the left breast of the jersey (on some versions of the uniform, though not the one shown here). This was also the year that pinstripes were introduced.[citation needed]

Team nickname

By this season, the alternate nickname "Yankees" was in very common usage by the media. The New York Times for Opening Day 1912 reported that "The Yankees presented a natty appearance in their new uniforms of white with black pinstripes." The pinstripes were a one-year experiment, but they would return for good on the home uniforms in 1915.

The final game of the season, and the final game for the "Highlanders" at the Hilltop, was played on October 5, 1912. The team moved to the Polo Grounds the following year. Hilltop Park was closed after the 1912 season and was demolished in 1914. It is now occupied by the New York-Presbyterian Hospital.
