|New York Yankees
are a professional baseball team based in the borough of
the Bronx, in New York City, New York. They belong to Major
League Baseball's American League East Division. One of
the American League's eight charter franchises, the club
was founded in Baltimore, Maryland in 1901 as the Baltimore
Orioles and moved to New York City in 1903, becoming known
as the New York Highlanders before being officially renamed
the "Yankees" in 1913. From 1923 to 2008, the Yankees' home
ballpark was Yankee Stadium, one of the world's most famous
sports venues. In 2009, they moved into a new stadium, also
called "Yankee Stadium"

The late George Steinbrenner
wasn't afraid to spend money Raul Mondesi was certainly
evidence of a hyperactive pocketbook -- but Steinbrenner
Field is an example of money spent well. It's basically
a miniature Yankee Stadium: the outfield fences are the
same dimensions as those in Yankee Stadium, the grandstand
has two levels and comprises most of the seating in the
stadium, the decorative elements ringing the grandstand
is exactly like those found at Yankee Stadium, a Monument
Park honoring former Yankee greats is located behind the
grandstand, and there are 12 luxury suites that are way
too overbuilt for the Florida State League.
In fact, there are no bleacher seats
or general-admission seating at all in Steinbrenner Field,
as all the seats are reserved armchair seating.Box seats
and field seats have padding.
Locationwise, Steinbrenner Field is
centrally located in Tampa. It's located only three miles
from the airport and directly across from Raymond James
Stadium (home of the NFL's Tampa Bay Buccaneers), so if
you fly into Tampa chances are good you'll see it from the
airplane during your approach.
