Who Has The Most Rings In Baseball?

A discussion of which baseball team has won the most World Series championships.

The New York Yankees

The New York Yankees are a baseball team that plays in the American League East Division. They are one of the most successful teams in baseball and have won 27 World Series championships. The Yankees have more rings than any other team in baseball.


The New York Yankees are an American professional baseball team based in the Bronx, New York City. They compete in Major League Baseball (MLB) as a member club of the American League (AL) East division. They are one of two MLB clubs based in New York City, the other being the National League’s (NL) New York Mets. The Yankees began play in the 1901 season as the Baltimore Orioles (no relation to the modern Baltimore Orioles). In 1903, Frank Farrell and Bill Devery purchased the franchise after it ceased operations and moved it to New York City, renaming the club the New York Highlanders. The Highlanders were officially renamed the Yankees in 1913.

The team is owned by Yankee Global Enterprises, an LLC controlled by Hal Steinbrenner, who is George’s son and has a minority stake. Following their late-season collapse and subsequent fire sale that saw many of their top players shipped off to other teams for young prospects and cash, Bombers GM Brian Cashman has retooled and rebuilt the Yankees’ roster with an emphasis on youth over veterans. The result has been one of baseball’s most consistent winners over the past two decades; they have finished first in their division 19 times since 1994 while missing the playoffs only four times (1995, 2008, 2014, 2016). The Yankees have also captured 40 AL pennants, which is more than any other team in history.

With 27 World Series championships, they are also baseball’s most successful franchise by that measure; their closest rival, the St. Louis Cardinals, have won 11 titles. The franchise has competed in more World Series than any other team; they played in 38 Series through 2017 (winning 27 of them), surpassing the San Francisco Giants’ record of 27 appearances since 2010 (which they broke when they appeared in their 28th Series that year). In addition, they have played more than 10% of all Series ever played and appear nearly twice as often as any other franchise except for those St. Louis Cardinals; among teams who have played at least ten World Series games since 1903—when games began to be counted—the Yankees account for 26% of all games played while those Cardinals account for 29%. They also became only one of two MLB teams to achieve this distinction along with Atlanta Braves

The Yankees have won a record 108 postseason series which includes donning Pinstripes for 40 American League Pennant winners which is also a Major League Baseball record. In terms of total wins percentage (.569), they are second only behind their rivals Boston Red Sox (.579). With 18 division titles since they joined MLB’s expanded playoff format in 1995 – including an unequalled streak of 13 consecutive division championships between 1998 and 2010 – at least one member of Core Four was on each Yankee squad responsible for winning each division title during said streak: catcher Jorge Posada (’98–2003), first baseman Tino Martinez (’98), second baseman Robinson Canó (’09–10) and pitcher Mariano Rivera (’95–2013). Shortstop Derek Jeter contributed to winning five division titles during his tenure with New York from 1995–2014 as well but was not part of any title-winning squads after 2003 due largely to nagging injuries that forced him to miss extended playing time beginning in 2004 up until he finally succumbed to them himself and retired following 2014 season. Outfielders Bernie Williams (’95)and Paul O’Neill(’95–2001) were important cogs during said streak as well as key members on 1996 & ’99 World Championship teams but like Jeter were not part of any title-winning squads after 2001 due respectively to fatherhood & age catching up with him began impacting his production and forced him into retirement following 2001 season


The New York Yankees have won 27 World Series championships, more than any other American professional baseball team. The Yankees have also appeared in 40 American League Championship Series, winning 21 times. They have played in the World Series a record 108 times. Thirty-seven Yankees players and eleven managers have been inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame, including Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, and Whitey Ford.

The St. Louis Cardinals

The St. Louis Cardinals have the most rings in baseball with 11. They have won the World Series in 1926, 1931, 1934, 1942, 1944, 1946, 1964, 1967, 1982, 2006, and 2011. The Cardinals have also won 19 National League pennants.


The St. Louis Cardinals are a professional baseball team based in St. Louis, Missouri. They compete in Major League Baseball (MLB) as a member club of the National League (NL) Central division. In 1900, they were known as the Brown Stockings, replacing the old team of the same name that folded after the 1899 season. In 1953, the team moved to Busch Stadium, which has been their home ballpark ever since.


The St. Louis Cardinals have won 11 World Series championships, the most of any team in the National League and second most of any team in Major League Baseball (behind the New York Yankees’ 27).

The Boston Red Sox

The Boston Red Sox have won the most World Series championships in baseball history with nine. The St. Louis Cardinals are second with 11 and the New York Yankees are third with 27.


The Boston Red Sox are an American professional baseball team based in Boston, Massachusetts. The Red Sox compete in Major League Baseball (MLB) as a member club of the American League (AL) East division. The Red Sox have won nine World Series championships, tied for the third-most of any MLB team, and they have played in 13. Their most recent appearance and win was in 2018. In addition, they won the 1904 American League pennant, but were not able to defend their 1903 World Series championship when the New York Giants refused to participate in the 1904 World Series. Founded in 1901 as one of the American League’s eight charter franchises, the Red Sox’ home ballpark has been Fenway Park since 1912. The “Red Sox” name was chosen by the team owner, John I. Taylor, around 1908, following previous color schemes for other Major League Baseball teams that had included red socks.

The red sock theme persisted until 1907, when former player and manager Patsy Donovan suggested that the team adopt a new look. Taylor announced that the team would wear all-white uniforms at home games and gray uniforms on the road; this combination was worn for three seasons before returning permanently to all-white at home and road gray in 1910. In 1915, pink socks became the new fad among baseball fans; Boston adopted pink socks for their road uniform to copy this trend. Pink hats also briefly became popular among fans during this time period.


The Boston Red Sox have won the most World Series championships in baseball history, with a total of eight titles. The first came in 1903, when the Sox defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates in the first-ever World Series. They won again in 1912, 1915, 1916, 1918, and then three more times in 2004, 2007, and 2013. The Sox have also appeared in five other World Series (1946, 1967, 1975, 1986, and 1990), but lost each time.
