The 2021 New York Yankees season was the 119th season in New York City for the Yankees, and the 121st season overall for the franchise.

The Yankees entered the 2021 season expecting to contend for the World Series. The Yankees' Opening Day was on April 1 against the Toronto Blue Jays at Yankee Stadium with 20% capacity. The full crowd at Globe Life Field got to witness starting pitcher Corey Kluber throw a no-hitter against the Texas Rangers on May 19. The Yankees turned an 'around-the-horn' triple play on May 21 against the Chicago White Sox starting with third baseman Gio Urshela to second baseman Rougned Odor and then to first baseman Luke Voit.

During a game against the Toronto Blue Jays in Buffalo, New York, on June 17, the Yankees turned the first 1-3-6-2-5-6 triple play in major league history. The franchise had never turned more than one triple play in a season. Then on June 20, with 100% full crowd capacity, the Yankees turned their record-tying third triple play of the season to strand the go-ahead run in the top of the ninth inning, shutting down the Oakland Athletics and winning the game.[2]

The Yankees underperformed throughout the regular season and were 41–41, with 80 games left to play on July 4. The Yankees went 51–29 in their final 80 games including a season-high 13 game winning streak, their longest winning streak since 1961. On September 30, the Yankees clinched a Wild Card berth with a 1–0 win against the Tampa Bay Rays. The Yankees finished the regular season with a 92–70 record and qualified for the postseason as the fifth seed in the American League (AL), before losing to the fourth-seed Boston Red Sox in the AL Wild Card Game at Fenway Park on October 5, their fifth consecutive playoff exit.[3]

From September 6–9, the Yankees never led in the 4-game series against the Blue Jays, the first time since 1924 they never led in a 4-game series in the regular season.
