The 1946 New York Yankees season was the team's 44th season in New York, and its 46th overall. The team finished with a record of 87–67, finishing 17 games behind the Boston Red Sox. New York was managed by Joe McCarthy, Bill Dickey, and Johnny Neun. The Yankees played at Yankee Stadium.

Offseason

  • Prior to 1946 season: Frank Verdi was signed as an amateur free agent by the Yankees.[1]

Regular season

On May 24, Joe McCarthy, who had managed the team since 1931 and led them to seven World Championships, resigned.[2] Although he had been in ill health, there were also underlying issues with team executive Larry MacPhail[3] and frustrations with the team's performance, especially that of pitcher Joe Page,[4] with whom he had an argument the previous day on the team plane.[5] Long-time Yankee catcher Bill Dickey took over the team. Dickey himself resigned on September 12,[6] and coach Johnny Neun finished out the year at the helm.
