The New York Yankees farm system consists of nine Minor League Baseball affiliates on the east coast of the United States and in the Dominican Republic.[1] Six teams are owned by the major league club, while three—the Trenton Thunder, Charleston RiverDogs, and Pulaski Yankees—are independently owned.

The Yankees have been affiliated with the Rookie League Gulf Coast League Yankees of the Gulf Coast League since 1980, making it the longest-running active affiliation in the organization among domestic teams.[2] It is also the longest affiliation in the team's history. Their newest affiliate is the Pulaski Yankees of the Appalachian League which became the Yankees' Rookie League club in 2015.[2]

Geographically, New York's closest domestic affiliate is the Staten Island Yankees of the Class A Short Season New York–Penn League which is approximately 15 miles (24 km) away. New York's furthest domestic affiliates are the Tampa Tarpons of the Class A-Advanced Florida State League and two Gulf Coast League Yankees squads of the Rookie Gulf Coast League which share a facility some 1,012 miles (1,629 km) away.
