To the best of my knowledge, the pinstripes have always been blue. The Yankees colors have always incorporated blue and never black. They do use a dark blue color which can appear black, but I have never seen or read anywhere about black being used on a Yankees uniform. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Same song as when they win, New York, New York, by Frank Sinatra.
The New York Yankees originated in Baltimore, Maryland as the Baltimore Orioles in 1901.
Their current manager Joe Girardi. Yogi Berra also caught and managed for the Yankees.
The New York Yankees first started wearing pinstripes on their uniforms in 1912. This was also the year they began to undertake a name change from the Highlandes to the Yankees.
The Yankees slogan is: "Pride, Power, Pinstripes"
The Yankees have had pinstripes as their main uniform design since 1913. The Phillies pinstripe uniforms were introduced in 1948. So the Yankees have had pinstripes longer.
In 1912 at West Virginia.
The number of pinstripes will vary on a jersey, pants, or the size of the uniform. The pinstripes are 1" apart on center.
The Yankees started wearing pinstripes in 1912 as a fashion statement. Even though they were not the first team to wear them. They abandoned the pinstripes in 1913-1914, but in 1915 they went back to the pinstripes for good.
its a tradition
To distinguish theirs from the NY Giants
Same as the pinstripes and hat. Dark blue.
The Yankees have a white uniform with black pinstripes going vertically with the "NY" logo on their shirt for their home uniforms. for the away uniforms they have gray shirts and pants with "New York" across their chests.
