Did the Babe really call his shot in the 1932 World Series? He seems to think so. Listen to Ruth talk about it.

On October 2, 1978, Bucky Bleeping Dent killed the Red Sox and silenced Fenway with one of the most clutch home runs in Yankee history. The Yankees were 14 games behind Boston at one point during the season, but came back to force only the second regular season playoff in AL history. The Yankees won 5-4. Dent's homer was the start of a magical fall, as the Bronx Bombers went on to wrap up the pennant and the World Series for the second straight season.

Dwight Gooden became a star with the Mets, but Doc made history on the other side of New York with the Yankees on May 14, 1995. He threw only the eighth regular-season no-hitter in Yankee history. It was a 2-0 shutout of the Seattle Mariners at the Stadium. Gooden's place and image with the Pinstripes changed from this day foward.

Don Larsen pitches the only perfect game in World Series history against the Dodgers on October 8, 1956. Who can forget the site of Yogi Berra jumping in Larsen's arms? Without this game, who is Don Larsen?

Dying from the disease that would be named after him, Lou Gehrig brought all Yanks fans to tears with his famous speech on July 4, 1939. Gehrig's number 4 would be the first retired number in Major League Baseball history. The Iron Horse was one of the most beloved Yankees in team history.

Ask any of Mickey Mantle's living teammates or anyone who saw him play and they will tell you that his bat made a different sound when connecting with the ball. The Mick, like Gehrig before him and Mattingly, Munson and Jeter after him, was a beloved Yankee icon. Here is one of Mantle's 536 home runs.

Roger Maris put together one of the most dynamic yet stressful individual seasons in big league history. His 61 home runs during the 1961 season made him the all-time single season home run leader, a record previously held by Babe Ruth (60 homers) in 1927. Mickey Mantle finished the year with 54 because of injury. The M and M boys put on a show though, with Maris finishing on top. Maris won the MVP in 1961 for the second straight year. Many, including one time Yankee and Maris teammate Clete Boyer, still feel Maris is the all-time single season home run king because of the steroid era of the last decade.

No other team has won as many World Series titles as the Yanks (26). No other team has won five straight championships either. That is exactly what the New York Yankees did in 1953, defeating the Brooklyn Dodgers in six games. Billy Martin's performance was for the record books: .500 average, 12 hits, a double, two triples, two home runs and eight RBIs. The legendary Mel Allen has the call.
