10. The Yankees won the World Series in the opening seasons of the old and new stadiums

No matter what side of the street the Yankees play on, they have won their first World Series in both stadiums.

When the Yankees finally got their own stadium in 1923, they also hosted the World Series in the same year. They played the New York Giants, a team with which they had shared a stadium for years, and defeated them in six games. Since then, the Yankees have won 26 other World Series.

It seems that the first year in a new stadium is good luck for the Yankees because they won the World Series during their inaugural season at the new stadium. The Yankees beat the Philadelphia Phillies in six games as well. With this victory, the Yankees took the World Series title from the Phillies who had won the championship the year prior.
