When dealing with arguably the most storied franchise in all of sports, it is difficult to determine an order for the greatest pure hitters in the history of the New York Yankees.
However, I am here to make the argument a bit clearer.
From the Great Bambino to "Mr. November", the pinstripes have peppered some of the game's greatest players throughout baseball history.
Hitting for power and average, names like Lou Gehrig and Mickey Mantle collect attention throughout American households still today.
Not everyone, however, was fortunate enough to have a lengthy career like Derek Jeter or play in the same era as Babe Ruth.
So who belongs where among the elite hitters to ever grace the Bronx and which Yankee was the greatest pure hitter of all-time?
Here's my take.
