History, Comments, Contributions[edit]

The 1968 New York Yankees played the 66th season in team history. They finished with a record of 83-79, 20 games behind the Detroit Tigers. New York was managed by Ralph Houk. The Yankees played at Yankee Stadium.

This was the last season for all-time great Mickey Mantle, who retired before the 1969 season. He was still a productive player at the time, although his statistics appear paltry because 1968 was the heart of the second dead-ball era. For example, the team holds the major league record for lowest team batting average since 1920 with .214.
