The New York Yankees are perhaps the most storied of professional franchises in the history of sports. They've been in New York since 1903 and have won 27 World Series Championships during their tenor in the Big Apple and remain one of the most popular teams in the league. From Babe Ruth to Joe Dimaggio and from Mickey Mantle to Reggie Jackson, the team has had many of the most polarizing and popular players in the game. New York Yankees 1993-1999 is a special look at the most recent World Series Championship team. During this six year period the Yankees rebuilt their team around gritty and gutsy players like Derek Jeter and Bernie Williams and they reintroduced the Yankee greatness to the modern day fans.

July 18, 1999
Montreal Expos 0 at New York Yankees 6, F -- Yogi Berra Day: Following a Larsen-to-Berra first pitch, Cone echoes their perfection. Before the game, the Yankees honored Yogi Berra, who caught the first pitch from Don Larsen. Almost 43 years earlier, with Berra behind the plate, Larsen pitched a perfect game in the World Series against the Brooklyn Dodgers at the stadium. Fast-forward to that July day and it was -- as Berra might put it -- "déjà vu all over again."

5. 5/17/98: David Wells' Perfect Game
May 17, 1998
Minnesota Twins 0 at New York Yankees 4, F -- 35-year-old David Wells dragged a turbulent season and 5.23 ERA behind him to the mound, and, 27 outs later was carried off of it, perfect. The season, up to this point, had not been an easy one for Wells. Being yanked from his previous start in the third inning, despite a 9-0 Yankee lead, had Boomer openly contemplating retirement. Not an irrational thought for someone two weeks shy of his 35th birthday. But he didn't, of course, and on May 17 hauled his 5.23 ERA out to the Yankee Stadium mound to face the Minnesota Twins. 27 batters later, as Paul O'Neill squeezed the last out in right field, Boomer would drop to his knees, elated and overwhelmed... a member of baseball's immortal pantheon.

1996 World Series, Game 6: Atlanta Braves 2 at New York Yankees 3, F -- The Yankees beat "the team of the 90s" and begin a modern dynasty. Having blown a two-games-to-none lead in the series, the Braves needed a win to stay alive. But the Yanks broke through early, scoring three runs in the third inning off ace Greg Maddux. After a Joe Girardi triple got things rolling, Bernie Williams provided a single that scored Derek Jeter with the winning run in the Series' decisive contest. Jimmy Key and a strong Yankee bullpen held off Atlanta, closing things out when Charlie Hayes squeezed Mark Lemke's foul pop for the final out and the end of a dramatic series.

October 9, 1996
Baltimore Orioles 4 at New York Yankees 5, F -- A young fan reaches out over the O's outfielder, ushering Derek Jeter's game-tying 8th inning drive into the seats, as home-field advantage took on new meaning. With the Orioles holding a 4-3 lead going to the bottom of the eighth, fate - in the form of 12-year-old Yankee fan Jeffrey Maier - intervened. Yankee rookie Derek Jeter led off the inning with a fly ball to right field, and Orioles right fielder Tony Tarasco appeared to have it measured for the catch, but Maier reached out and snatched it away and over the fence. Bernie Williams led off the bottom of the 11th with a homer off Orioles closer Randy Myers to lift the Yankees to the win.

2. 5/14/96: Dwight Gooden's No-Hitter
May 14, 1996
Seattle Mariners 0 at New York Yankees 2, F -- His father awaiting heart surgery, Dwight "Doc" Gooden, 0-3 and winless in 23 months, delivers one of the grittiest, 135-pitch no-hitters in history. In the first inning, Seattle shortstop Alex Rodriguez smashed a drive to center field, but Yankee outfielder Gerald Williams made a sensational over-the-shoulder grab. The play would loom large as Gooden piled up the outs, striking out five while walking six. Facing the heart of the Mariners' lineup in the ninth and way past a reasonable 100-pitch count, some wondered whether Doc would have enough gas to get over the finish line. Manager Joe Torre left him in, and he got Ken Griffey, Jr. to bounce out, Jay Buhner to strike out, and Paul Sorrento to pop up. Finally, 135 pitches deep, his teammates carried the emotional and exhausted former Rookie of the Year and Cy Young winner off the field to the cheers of the more than 31,000 fans at Yankee Stadium.
9/4/93: Jim Abbott's No-Hitter

October 4, 1993
Cleveland Indians 0 at New York Yankees 4, F -- Six days after a 10-hit three-inning stint, Jim Abbott turns it around for this no-no in Yankee Stadium. Folks always rooted for Abbott, the one-handed lefty who wanted to be "like Nolan Ryan, not Pete Grey." On this cloudy day in the Bronx he was like his idol, walking only five and allowing no hits... a mere six days after a rough 10-hit, seven-run, 3 1/3 innings start against the same Cleveland Indians lineup.
