Top 10 Managers In New York Yankees History

5. Ralph Houk

Houk was the manager of three tremendous Yankee teams (1961-1963). The 309 wins he collected in his first three years as a MLB skipper should earn him more than enough credit.

That success yielded two consecutive World Series titles in 1961 and 1962, and a third straight AL pennant in 1963.

He famously managed the eye-popping 1961 season, a campaign which saw Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris combine for 115 home runs — Maris setting a single-season major league record (61).

Fittingly enough, a year that arguably featured the most lethal regular season middle of the lineup attack saw the Yanks win 109 games, steamrolling through every sign of competition.
