Not even the organization itself can imagine this.

Heading into the 2015 season, New York City baseball fans knew the status-quo. They knew the Big Apple was the city of the New York Yankees and that the New York Mets came second.

One World Series appearance couldn’t change that. Thanks to the raging success of the Bronx Bombers over the last two decades, it would take many years of continued success for a city to change its colors.

The momentum captured off the 2015 Fall Classic is now taking form by way of green – money, that is.

Who would’ve thought it? Just one hot stretch run has now forced New York City to change its colors so drastically.
