The 1958 New York Yankees season was the 56th season for the team in New York….and its 58th season overall. The team finished with a record of 92–62….winning their 24th pennant….finishing 10 games ahead of the Chicago White Sox. In the 1958 World Series….they defeated the Milwaukee Braves in 7 games. New York was managed by Casey Stengel….as the Yankees played their home games at Yankee Stadium. In 1958, the Yankees became New York City’s only professional baseball team after the Brooklyn Dodgers moved to Los Angeles and the New York Giants left for San Francisco…..and would hold this distinction until 1962….when the New York Mets began play.
