The 1978 New York Yankees season was the 76th season for the Yankees. The Yanks and Red Sox were tied after 162 games, leading to a one-game playoff, which the Yankees won, to claim their third American League East title. That year, New York was managed by Billy Martin, Dick Howser, and Bob Lemon.

In the best-of-five League Championship Series (ALCS), they defeated the Kansas City Royals in four games. In the World Series, they defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers in six games in a rematch of the previous year's.

The season was tumultuous for the Yankees, as Reggie Jackson was suspended in a mid-season showdown with Billy Martin, which resulted in Martin resigning a week later. For television viewers of the Bronx Bombers, it was the first season to be broadcast nationwide via satellite via WPIX, which that year became a superstation as well partly in response to Ted Turner's WTCG-TV nationwide broadcasts of the Atlanta Braves beginning on Opening Day of 1977.
