Empire State of Mind: Yankee Global Enterprises

The 2018 baseball season was a failure for the New York Yankees. Period. Despite winning 100 games and achieving the third best record in baseball, the 2018 baseball season was a failure. Many other organizations would consider a playoff appearance as a successful end to their season. Well not the New York Yankees, and if you didn’t know that by now, then you shouldn’t be running this organization. Welcome to Yankee Global Enterprises, LLC – the administrative arm of Yankees baseball. We have three goals every season: expand our revenue base, beat the Boston Red Sox, and, most importantly, win the World Series. While there were many shortcomings in 2018, the Yankees have a bright future ahead. With a solid, young core complemented by an array of veteran players, the team looks poised to make another run at the World Series title. As the Yankees, we expect nothing less. Good luck. Hal and Hank Steinbrenner Co-Owners of the New York Yankees


Chair | Ryan Wolfe

Ryan Wolfe is a fourth year from Richmond, VA majoring in History and Foreign Affairs. This is Ryan's fifth time chairing and his first time chairing a sports committee. Outside of Model UN, Ryan is a member of the club ultimate frisbee team and the Washington Literary Society and Debating Union. He also enjoys a wide variety of music, ranging from alternative rock to hip hop. The idea for this committee came out of Ryan’s love for baseball and, more importantly, the New York Yankees – the greatest franchise in the history of sports. He has been a Yankees fan since birth, and is ecstatic to run such a prestigious organization with his delegates. As his last chairing experience, Ryan is looking forward to an exciting and memorable weekend. Disclaimer: any Red Sox fans in this committee will be disqualified from receiving awards. Go Yanks!
