CIRCA 1939:  (FILE PHOTO)  New York Yankees outfielder, Joe DiMaggio (1914-1999), holds a few baseball bats while in uniform circa 1939 in an undisclosed location. Prior to being known as the New York Yankees, the Baltimore franchise of the American League was moved to New York City on January 9, 1903. The team was nicknamed 'The Highlanders' shortly thereafter and only acquired the current name 'Yankees' circa April 1913.  (Photo by New York Times Co./Getty Images)
