The reason : Tradition! The Yankees, Giants and Red Sox have continued the old practice of not having names on the home jerseys. The Yankees, of course, don't have names on their road jerseys as well. If you put numbers on the jerseys but no names, fans had to buy a scorecard to figure out which player was which.
