Yankees Spring Training Location
The Yankees play their spring training games at George M. Steinbrenner field, an 11,026-seat complex, in Tampa, Florida. New York has been training in Tampa since 1993 after previously holding early-season workouts in Fort Lauderdale.
Steinbrenner field is the largest spring training ballpark in Florida and, in addition to serving as the location of Yankees’ spring training, is also the home of the the Tampa Yankees, team’s Class A Advanced Florida State league affiliate.
