The New York Yankees are one of the most storied franchises in Major League Baseball, with 27 World Series championships to their name. And, with one of the biggest spending budgets in the sport, they are perennial contenders. The Bronx Bombers will begin their pursuit of title No. 28 in their home away from home, Steinbrenner Field in Tampa, Fla., and if you plan to be there with them, you’ve come to the right place.

Keep reading for the Yankees’ 2023 preseason schedule and things to do in and around Steinbrenner Field.

Big and Bold

Opened in 1996, the beginning of the Bronx Bombers’ most recent period of success, Steinbrenner Field is the largest stadium in the Florida Grapefruit League, with more than 10,000 seats. Its main entrance features a palm tree-lined plaza complete with fountains, creating a beautiful setting for fans before and after games.

A Success Story

No team has won more World Series than the Yankees’ 27, and visitors to Steinbrenner Field can’t escape that fact as flags marked with the years of each of those championships fly atop the ballpark’s main grandstand. Photos of several of those legendary teams are also displayed above the gates into the grandstand.

Fun Fact 👇

The dimensions of the playing field at Steinbrenner Field are the same as those of Yankee Stadium, providing players with the perfect training ground for the regular season. Why hasn’t every other team thought of this?!

Parking and Transportation 🚗

George M. Steinbrenner Field is located at 1 Steinbrenner Drive in Tampa, Fla. It’s across the street from Raymond James Stadium, home of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, just off Dale Mabry Highway. As a result, it’s easy to find. Take I-275 to the Dale Mabry Highway/U.S. 92 exit (41A) and travel north for about 1.5 miles. The stadium is at the corner of Dale Mabry and Martin Luther King Boulevard.

The 800 parking spaces located behind the ballpark are reserved for the handicapped, season ticket, and suite holders. Fans seated in the grandstand and elsewhere park in the grass lots at Raymond James Stadium, across the street. A pedestrian bridge above Dale Mabry Highway allows fans to walk back and forth between the general parking lot and the ballpark.

Channelside and Sparkman Wharf 🤟

Venture past Amalie Arena a few blocks and arrive at Sparkman Wharf, Tampa’s latest upgrade to Channelside. Think rows of good food and desserts sold out of artsy shipping containers, and a central spot to grab drinks, all by the waterside. You can’t go wrong with anything here!
