Yankee Stadium: World Series History

Perhaps the best description of Yankee Stadium is as follows: "It's called the World Series, but it's usually played here." Since its opening in 1923, the World Series have been played at Yankee Stadium an astounding 37 times out of 82 World Series through 2005, with the Yankees winning 26 out of 37.

These are the World Series that were clinched at Yankee Stadium:

New York Yankees, in 1927, 1938, 1947, 1950, 1951, 1953, 1977, 1996 and 1999.
St. Louis Cardinals, in 1926 and 1942.
Brooklyn Dodgers in 1955, their only World Championship before moving to Los Angeles.
Milwaukee Braves, in 1957, through 2005 the only World Series won by a Milwaukee team.
Cincinnati Reds, in 1976.
Los Angeles Dodgers, in 1981.
Florida Marlins, in 2003.
The Yankees clinched World Series wins on the road at: The Polo Grounds in 1923, 1936 and 1937; Sportsman's Park in St. Louis in 1928 and 1943; Wrigley Field in Chicago in 1932; Crosley Field in Cincinnati in 1939 and 1961; Ebbets Field in Brooklyn in 1941, 1949, 1952 and 1956; Milwaukee County Stadium in 1958; Candlestick Park in San Francisco in 1962; Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles in 1978; Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego in 1998; and Shea Stadium in New York in 2000.
The Yankees lost the World Series on the road in 1960, 1963, 1964 and 2001.
The Yankees also lost the 1921 and 1922 World Series to the N.Y. Giants, but at the time the Yankees played their homes games at the Polo Grounds -- the Giants' park.
