The 1957 New York Yankees season was the 55th season for the team in New York….and its 57th season overall. The team finished with a record of 98–56……winning their 23rd AL pennant…..finishing eight games ahead of the Chicago White Sox…..and being managed by Casey Stengel. The Yankees played their home games at Yankee Stadium.
In the World Series, the Yankees were defeated by the Milwaukee Braves in seven games. They lost the crucial seventh game in Yankee Stadium….to the Braves starting pitcher Lew Burdette….who was selected the World Series Most Valuable Player…..based on this and his other two victories in the Series…..but this was a great Yankee team that rivaled any team from the past.
