Florida Grapefruit League - Florida Spring Training - New York Yankees:Discount Orlando Resorts

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"

Address 1 Steinbrenner Dr., Tampa.
Directions Take I-275 to North Dale Mabry (U.S. Hwy. 92), exit 41B (old 23). Proceed north approximately three miles. Steinbrenner Field will be on your left, directly across from Raymond James Stadium. Follow the signs for parking, as you'll park on the opposite side of Dale Mabry from the ballpark.

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.
