Yankee Connections to 2014 World Series Teams

The Yankees did not make the 2014 World Series and have just two members of their all time roster participating as players in this year’s Fall Classic, both with the Royals; Raul Ibanez & Jayson Nix. Ex Yankee closer Dave Righetti is the Giants’ very successful pitching coach. There have been however, many former and current Yankees who also played for the Royals or Giants. Here’s my all-time lineups for such players:
