Often consider one of the greatest teams to ever be assembled, it featured "Murders' Row" of which Earle Combs (located in the center row, far right) was a member. These group of batsman were the meat of the lineup, for which all of Baseball feared, and consisted the first 6 batters in the Yankees arsenal. They were Earle Combs, Mark Koenig, Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Bob Muesel and Tony Lazzeri. These guys decimated the opposition. Once, after a July game against the Senators, Senators first baseman Joe Judge said,
“Those fellows not only beat you but they tear your heart out. I wish the season was over.”By the end, they had finished with a 110-44 record (best ever in Baseball at the time and until 1954) with a 19 game lead over the second place A's. Gehrig established the record for most RBI's in a season at 175, Ruth set the single season home run record at 60 that would last for decades and the Yankees rolled over the hapless Pirates in a four game sweep to win the World Series.
