The New York Yankees' 1994 season was the 92nd season for the Yankees. The team finished with a record of 70-43 finishing 6.5 games ahead of the Baltimore Orioles, having the best record in the American League and the second-best record in Major League Baseball. New York was managed by Buck Showalter. The Yankees played at Yankee Stadium. The season was cut short by the infamous 1994 player's strike, which wiped out any postseason aspirations that their star player and captain, Don Mattingly, had. It also wiped out any aspirations for their first postseason since 1981.
