What was the original name of the NY Yankees franchise?

Answer:

THE HIGHLANDERS

There was a time in baseball history when the “New York Yankees” were called the “New York Highlanders”. They had no World Championships and Babe Ruth was just eight years old when the team played their first game. Not only did the New York Highlanders have a losing record for many years, but the team’s home field was also a mess: it was located near a swamp, the outfield had no grass, and the ballpark sat mostly unfinished. In 1913, The Highlanders changed their name to the Yankees, moved their stadium to the Bronx, and went on to become one of the most successful sports franchise in the world.
