Oct-Nov 2009

We watched and cheered as the Yankees
won their 27th World Series!

The 2009 World Series was the 105th edition of Major League Baseball's championship series.
The Yankees played the Philadelphia Phillies.

The Yankees defeated the Phillies in 2009, four games to two,
to win the franchise's 27th World Series championship.

Hideki Matsui was named Most Valuable Player of the series, the first by a Japanese born player as well as the first player to win it as a full-time designated hitter. **In Game 6 alone, Matsui drove in six runs.

Andy Pettitte won the clinching game in all three series this postseason for the Yankees.

This was the fifth Series played between teams from New York and Philadelphia, and was the first Yankees–Phillies matchup since 1950

The Yankees christened the first season in their new ballpark the same way they opened their old stadium in 1923: with a World Series championship.

The Empire State Building lit up in blue and white to celebrate the win!
