The team finished with a record of 97–57, winning their 15th pennant, finishing 12 games ahead of the Detroit Tigers. New York was managed by Bucky Harris. The Yankees played their home games at Yankee Stadium. In the World Series, they defeated the Brooklyn Dodgers in 7 games.

    Regular season

    The 1947 Yankees, led by MVP Joe DiMaggio, won the AL pennant by 12 games over the Tigers. They played the Brooklyn Dodgers in the World Series, winning a close-fought seven-game series that featured memorable moments like Cookie Lavagetto's walk-off double in game 4 and Al Gionfriddo's famous catch that robbed DiMaggio of a potential home run.
