Brief History
The Yankees began as the Baltimore Orioles when the American League was established in 1901. The president of the American League, Ben Johnson, and manager and part owner of the Orioles, John McGraw, began feuding. McGraw secretly jumped to the New York Giants and helped the Giants take players from the Orioles. In 1903 a peace conference was held between the two leagues to settle the issue. During this conference the decision was made to move the Orioles to New York to compete with the Giants.
