Fact of the Day
The logo was originally designed in 1877. Its first appearance was on a medal of honor for the new New York City Police Department. Famously, it was given to the first NYPD officer shot in the line of duty.
During the turn of the century, the Baltimore Orioles moved to NY and became known as the Highlanders. The team logo shifted from a "B" to an "N" and a "Y" that were just next to one another. In 1909, the team adopted the old police logo that was designed by Tiffany and still identifies the Yankees today.
