Preserving History: #27

After each major sporting event, HHR takes a look at how it is portrayed in news print in some of the nation's leading dailies. Part out of curiosity, and part to preserve the dying medium.

The Yankees have a long, storied history. Yesterday, they celebrated their 27th world championship - the most of any franchise in any sport. Granted, the team has been around for a century and won the first few championships against the likes of the Reading Cobblers and the Newark Haberdashers. But that's beside the point.

After having signed the top three available free agents this past season, and with a payroll $63 million higher than the next franchise, the Yankees finally accomplished what they set out to do back in spring - having bought the most expensive championship in baseball history. Bravo!
