Every winter, major league baseball teams throughout the U.S. come down to Florida to escape the cold and train within the Florida Grapefruit League. For the last 23 years, the New York Yankees have had their spring season in our own backyard at Tampa’s George M. Steinbrenner Field, opposing other 15 major league teams.
The team will be here training until the end of March, with their last game being March 24, giving you and your loved one a few more weeks to head to one of their games.
Coming up, the New York Yankees will be playing the Atlanta Braves, Tampa Bay Rays, Philadelphia Phillies, New York Mets, Pittsburgh Pirates, Houston Astros, Miami Marlins, Boston Red Sox, and more.
Tickets range from $25 to $100 depending on quality of seats, making it a fun and affordable date for all. Parking is also only an additional $10. Tickets can be bought online or at the stadium itself.
In addition to the Yankees in Tampa, the Philadelphia Phillies are currently training in Clearwater at Spectrum field and the Pittsburgh Pirates are in Bradenton at LECOM Park.
No better date than a baseball game, watching the Yankees, Phillies, or Pirates, hot dog in one hand and your lover’s in the other!
