New York Yankees Rookie of the Year Award Winners

YANKEE STADIUM PROMONADEThe Rookie of the Year Award began in 1947 and is bestowed by the Baseball Writers Association of America. In 1947 and 1948 there was one award for all of Major League Baseball. However, from 1949 to the modern day there is one honor for the best rookie in both the American League and National League.

The New York Yankees have eight players that have been Rookie of the Year since the inception of the award in 1947. Some might find it shocking that only eight New York Yankees have won the Rookie of the Year Award. But only the Dodgers have more award winners than the Yankees in the history of the award.

Below is the list of all New York Yankees Rookie of the Year Award winners. When you look at the list you might not see some historically great New York Yankees. It is important to remember that the award did not begin until 1947 and not every player erupts year one. Nevertheless there are some historical greats on the list to include but not limited to Thurman Munson and Derek Jeter.
