17 years ago today, the Yankees won the final World Series of the 20th century


October 27, 1999: The Yankees finished off their surprising sweep of the Atlanta Braves with a 4-1 victory. After 16 seasons of frustration, starter Roger Clemens finally notched his first World Series victory and the Yankees won their 25th overall while impressively matching the feats of the legendary '98 team. Hell they did one game better in the postseason: 11-1 vs. 11-2 in '98. Team of the Century? Absolutely.
