The New York Yankees' 1975 season was the 73rd season for the Yankees. The team finished with a record of 83-77, finishing 12 games behind of the Boston Red Sox. The Yankees played at Shea Stadium due to the ongoing renovation of Yankee Stadium, which would be done in time for opening day 1976.

Bill Virdon opened the season as Yankees manager, but he was replaced on August 1 by Billy Martin. This would be the first of several stints as Yankees manager for Martin.
