  I knew how they came up with the Yankees logo, but I wanted to share this with those fans who don't know. You can see the plaque from monument park shown below explaining what the interlocking NY insignia represents.

This is what it says...

This insignia was originally struck on a medal of honor in 1877 by Tiffany & Co. It was issued to the first New York city police officer shot in the line of duty. The New York Yankees adopted this logo and it became part of the uniform in 1909.
