Yankees' All-1960s Team (Batters)
These are the top players at each position during the 1960s for the Yankees, the team America loved (well, maybe not everybody).
Although the decade ended badly for the Yankees, it started off as per usual, with 5 trips to the World Series in 5 years. Then the wheels started falling off.
Here are the players who made at least 20 starts for the team during the 1960s (click to enlarge):
Long-time Braves manager Bobby Cox made the all-rookie team in 1968!
