The New York Yankees are a professional baseball team based in the Bronxmarker, New York. They compete in the East Division of Major League Baseball's (MLB) American League (AL). After beginning play in Baltimore, Maryland as the Baltimore Orioles in 1901, the club moved to New York two years later and became the Highlanders; in 1913, the team changed its nickname to the Yankees. From 1901 to 2008, the franchise has won more than 9,000 games and 26 World Series championships. The list below documents players and teams that hold particular club records.

Outfielder Babe Ruth holds the most franchise records, with 15, including career and single-season home runs, batting average, and on-base percentage. First baseman Lou Gehrig has the second-most records among hitters, with four; his marks include career and single-season runs batted in. Among pitchers, Whitey Ford has the most Yankees records with six, all of which are career totals. These include games won, strikeouts, and innings pitched.

Several Yankees hold AL and MLB records. Ruth has MLB single-season records for extra-base hits and total bases, and holds four other AL single-season records. Outfielder Joe DiMaggio recorded hits in 56 consecutive games in the 1941 season, a total that remains an MLB record. Chesbro holds three AL records—games won, games started, and complete games—that were set in 1904. Pitcher Spud Chandler, who spent his entire career with the Yankees, holds the all-time AL record for the highest winning percentage.
