Major League Baseball Players Who Won the World Series the Most Times

The following is a list of the major league baseball players who have won the World Series the most number of times. This is a great list for New York Yankees fans like myself, because every player on the list won at least one World Series playing for the Yankees.
In regards to that, it was easier for the Yankees to win the World Series in earlier times because there were many fewer teams in earlier times than there are today in the major leagues. Players are listed if they played for a team during the season that the team won the World Series.


Baseball P​layers W​ith the Most W​orld S​eries C​hampionships

1. Yogi Berra - 10
With 10 World Series Championships, Yogi Berra is the all-time leader in baseball history. Yogi won the World Series with the New York Yankees in 1947, 1949-1953, 1956, 1958, 1961, and 1962. Yogi Berra played in the majors for 19 years, so he won the World Series in over half the years he played in.
2. Joe DiMaggio - 9
Joe DiMaggio played in the major leagues for 13 years, all with the New York Yankees, and won the World Series in nine of those years. Joltin' Joe won the World Series in 1936-1939, 1941, 1947, 1949-1951. Joe DiMaggio would probably have won even more World Series, but he missed the 1943 to 1945 seasons due to WW II.
T-3. Bill Dickey - 8
Bill Dickey won eight World Series Championships with the New York Yankees in 1928, 1932, 1936-1939, 1941, and 1943. Dickey spanned the Babe Ruth era to the Joe DiMaggio era.
T-3. Phil Rizzuto - 8
Phil Rizzuto won eight World Series Championships with the Yankees in 1941, 1947, 1949-1953, and 1956. Like Joe DiMaggio, Phil Rizzuto would probably have won even more World Series but he too served in the military during WW II and missed the 1943 to 1945 seasons.
T-3. Frank Crosetti - 8
Frank Crosetti won the World Series in 1932, 1936-1939, 1941, 1943, and 1947 with the Yankees.

Babe Ruth did actually pitch in five games with the Yankees. He started four games and relieved in another one, and, even though he pitched to a 5.52 ERA, he won all five games.
