2. The Comeback Season (2015)
No, this is not a moment, in particular, but Teixeira’s resiliency and ability to bounce back into an MVP-type season in 2015.
Entering camp, the first baseman received tons of negativity with regards to his expected production thanks to injury-plagued seasons which served as a prequel to this highly productive year.
Teixeira slugged 31 home runs and drove in 79 runs in 111 games before a broken leg while being one of the major pieces to the Yankees team that snapped a two-year playoff-less streak.
It also included clutch home runs, insane plays at first, and the professionalism we have grown to know since he has joined the team.
