The New York Highlanders' 1908 season finished with the team in 8th place in the American League with a record of 51-103. New York was managed by future Hall of Fame pitcher Jack Chesbro. Their home games were played at Hilltop Park.

By now the alternate and equally unofficial nickname "Yankees" was being used frequently. The New York Times article about Cy Young's no-hitter on June 30, 1908, at "the American League Park" (Hilltop Park's formal name), referred to the club exclusively as "Yankees" throughout the article. Other newspapers continued to use the two nicknames interchangeably.
