The West Haven Yankees were a minor league baseball team located in West Haven, Connecticut from 1972 until 1982. The team played in the Eastern League. Their home stadiums were Quigley Stadium and Yale Field.

From 1972 until 1979, the team was affiliated with the New York Yankees, but the Yankees entered into a deal with a new Double-A team, the Nashville Sounds, after the 1979 season. West Haven then became affiliated with the Oakland Athletics in 1980, changing their name to the West Haven Whitecaps. The team changed their name again in 1981, this time to the West Haven A's. In 1983, the team moved to Albany, New York, becoming the Albany A's.
