Ecstasy in the Bronx as Yankees Win

Ad Feedback

For the 27th time in their history, the New York Yankees are the champions of Major League Baseball.
   
The Yankees beat the Philadelphia Phillies Wednesday night 7-to-3 to take the series in six games.

"It feels better than I remember it, man," captain Derek Jeter said. "It's been a long time."
    
Japanese-born Hideki Matsui, who was also named 2009's Most Valuable Player, led the way with six RBIs, tying a World Series record.

"It's awesome," Matsui said through a translator. "Unbelievable. I'm surprised myself."
    
The Yankees capped the series in their new stadium, which opened this year replacing "the house that Ruth built" in 1923.

After waiting nine years for another series title, Yankees fans will gather in New York City Friday morning for a ticker-tape parade to celebrate the win.
