The New York Yankees' 1999 season was the 97th season for the Bronx-based professional baseball team. The team finished with a record of 98–64 finishing 4 games ahead of the Boston Red Sox. New York was managed by Joe Torre. The Yankees played at Yankee Stadium. In the playoffs, they got to the World Series and defeated the Atlanta Braves in 4 games to win their 25th World Series title. By winning their 25th World Series, the New York Yankees became the most successful team in North America. A record previously held by the Montreal Canadiens in the NHL. In that year, FTA broadcasts returned to where they all started in 1947—Fox-owned WNYW, the network's flagship channel, while cable broadcasts continued on MSG.

  • Derek Jeter, Shortstop, Reserve

In popular culture

  • In the 1995 Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode "Past Tense", a character from the 2020s called the 1999 New York Yankees the best team he had ever seen. While it could be argued the 1998 team was better, it is considered remarkable that a television program that aired in 1995 could have even predicted such a successful season for a specific team.
