The New York Yankees registered their biggest-ever win on May 24, 1936. They beat Philadelphia Athletics, who are now known as Oakland A’s, 25-2. The run difference was 23.

In the postseason, however, the biggest victory margin of the Yankees was 14. They achieved it against the New York Giants in 1936.

The 1936 season marked a triumphant return to form for the New York Yankees. Under the guidance of manager Joe McCarthy, the team secured their eighth pennant with an impressive 102-51 record, finishing a commanding 19.5 games ahead of the second-place Detroit Tigers.

This Yankees’ season was particularly notable for the debut of Joe DiMaggio on May 3. The rookie sensation quickly made his mark, batting ahead of the legendary Lou Gehrig and playing a crucial role in the team’s success. DiMaggio’s impact was immediate and significant, helping to end the Yankees’ four-year World Series drought.

Another highlight of the Yankees’ season came on May 24, when Tony Lazzeri etched his name in baseball history. In a game against the Philadelphia Athletics, Lazzeri became the first player in major league history to hit two grand slams in a single game.

The Yankees’ dominance continued into the postseason, where they faced their crosstown rivals, the New York Giants, in the World Series. In a closely contested series, the Yankees emerged victorious in six games, reclaiming their position at the pinnacle of baseball.
