The number of yards in a block depends on the size of the block. Furthermore, a block is a unit of area, whereas a yard is a unit of length, so another dimension is needed.

One yard is equal to 0.9144 meters. The area described by 1 square yard is equal to 0.836 square meters. For a block that is 100 square meters, 119.6 blocks measuring 1 square yard each can fit inside it. Additionally, 109.36 yards is equal to a line that is 100 meters long. The yard is a common unit of measurement in American sports, but is not the standard International System of Units measurement.
