Hey, New York baseball fans: is your step a little more spring these days? Does the smell of freshly mowed grass smell a little sweeter? Does ashtray on cowhide sound like beautiful music?
It should. The Yankees were the first team to win 50 in the major event – with just 67 games – and the Wilds had their second-best 45:24 record in baseball on Monday.
Statistically, this may be the best combined season in New York’s baseball history.
Yes, there are still months to play, players are healthy or injured, and a series of wins and losses. But the average victory rate for Yankees (.746) and Wilds (.652) is 0.699. This would reduce their average winning percentage in any of the previous 60 seasons in which they have co-existed.
Surprisingly, the last full season wasn’t the best of them in 2000, when the Yankees defeated the savages in the Subway series. The fates of these teams coincided in the offseason, but the bad guys made it to the playoffs with a 0.580 percent win as a wild card, and the Yankees, although a division winner, were relatively 0.540 pedestrians.
Their best combined season came two years earlier, when the 1998 Yankees had a victory of 0.704 with 114:48 and won the World Series. Combine this with the fact that the forest reached second place in the League of Nations second with a record of 88-74 (0.543), and you get an average percentage of 0.624. Excellent figure, but much less than this year’s 0.699.

“Relax, right? Don’t try to knock everyone out. Strikethrough is boring! Besides, they’re fascists. Throw in some globes, it’s more democratic.
- Outlier who wants to fit: He tried his hand at college softball, but Kelsie Whitmore is where he belongs: he plays professional baseball in Staten Island.
- Ace is looking for a new title: Dave Stewart has been a star player, coach, agent and CEO. To really change baseball, he wants to have a team.
- Look good, feel good, play well. Does it smell good ?: For many players, a high dose of cologne or women’s perfume is the unlikely performance enhancer.
- King of Throws: Tom House has spent his life helping the superstars get even better. With the new application, he wants to repair young people before they develop bad habits.
Yankees and Mets also achieved at least 0.600 percent win in 1999 (.600; Yankees won World Championships), 1986 (0.612; Mets won World Championships), and 1985 (0.604).
This is probably a good place to admit that many New York fans don’t consider combined greatness a good thing. For these fans, it is not enough for their preferred team to succeed; their uptown rival must also fail. Thus, the number of fans supporting the crossing of 1998 by these teams may be small.
Of course, the history of baseball in New York and its fierce rivalry did not begin when Forest came to the city in 1962. But even considering the times when the Yankees divided the city with the New York Giants and the Brooklyn Dodgers, the current season remains at its peak.
The best season of the New York three-team era was 1942 (.634). The Yankees made it to the World Cup and the Dodgers and Giants finished second and third in the national league. But they all fell to Stan Musiali St. In front of Louis Cardinals, who won the five-game World Cup Yankees.
The rest of the 0.600 seasons of that era all came in the 1950s: 1951 (0.626, the Yankees won the World Series of Giants), 1952 (0.614, ahead of the Yankees Dodgers) and 1954 (0.632, the Giants won the series).
Going back to the days before the Yankees existed, the city’s best 19th-century season was in 1889, when the Brooklyn Bridegrooms (later Dodgers) of the American Association and the Giants of the National League won a total of 0.669 percent. The Giants defeated Dodgers in the inter-league championship, the forerunner of the modern world series.
Sorry, the entries are not complete. Statistics for many Negro leagues have now been recognized as equivalent to other major leagues, but the data are not complete enough to be accurately included. One great season came in 1947, when Cubans in New York, along with Minnie Miñoso and Luis Tiant Sr., won the Negro World Championship after 0.687 percent victory, while the Yankees, Giants and Dodgers set a record of 0.589. But this season’s average winning streak pulls down the New York Black Yankees, who had a terrible 12:43.
Keeping the winning percentage high with multiple teams is difficult. The best New York baseball season, dating back to the founding of the giants at New York’s Gothams in 1883, came technically four dark years after the Giants and Dodgers moved to the West, leaving Yankees the only game in town. It was 1961, the year after the trip, and the Yankees had a victory rate of 0.673 when Roger Maris and Mickey Mantle battled for a record for Babe Ruth’s home run. They put the cherries on, winning the World Cup.
Whether the Yankees and the forest of this season will be able to surpass the success of the main season of 1889, 1942, 1961 or 1998 will not be known until months later. But no matter how you read things, there has been a golden season for baseball in New York. Maybe it’s rubbing the Jets and Giants.
