History

Are you ready for some high intensity baseball? Whether you're there to see the New York Yankees take the field for spring training, or you're there to see the Tampa Yankees dominate the field in the Class A division of the minor leagues, you won't be disappointed when you come out to George M. Steinbrenner Field. The stadium is located in Tampa, Florida, and is one of the most popular sports arenas in the Old South. It has played host to some of the biggest games in sports history. It encompasses more than 31 acres, and can hold more than 11,000 cheering fans. It offers fan a luxurious sporting experience with top-notch suites, a dugout club, the one-of-a-kind Tampa party deck and the largest Yankees gift shop in the southeast.

Construction on the arena began in 1993 after the Tampa Sports Authority made a deal with the New York Yankees to construct a spring training facility. The facility cost $30 million to build, and was funded almost completely by public funds. It was originally called Legends Field, a name which it kept from 1996 until 2008. In 2008, the stadium's name was changed to honor longtime owner and manager of the New York Yankees—George Steinbrenner. He saw the Yankees win seven World Series titles and 11 pennants under his ownership. He was known for being a "hands on" manager, and was given the nickname "The Boss." Because of his outspoken nature, he was sometimes a controversial character in the world of baseball. But although he sometimes ruffled feathers, he made a big impression on fans and those he managed.

The stadium opened with a bang in March of 1996 when the New York Yankees took on the Cleveland Indians in a pre-season matchup. It has been the site of many great baseball battles. From the intense games between the New York Yankees during their spring training to the Class A minor league Tampa Yankees, this field has seen it all.
