The Scouting Report
The Tampa Yankees have been an avenue to the big leagues for nearly two decades. This spring alone, 52 former Tampa players were included on the New York Yankees spring training roster.
With the Florida State League All-Star Game in the rearview mirror, the Bronx Bombers’ Class A-Advanced affiliate charges into the second half of the 2013 season. Posting 12 home runs and 52 RBIs, catcher Gary Sanchez has played a significant role in fueling the team's offense and any baseball-powered generators past the outfield walls. On July 3, Sanchez and his fellow sluggers lead the team into a home showdown against the defending league champions, the Lakeland Flying Tigers, with a fireworks show following the game.
If there’s one team to emulate in professional sports, it’s the New York Yankees and their 27 championships. Since becoming the Class A-Advanced affiliate of the big league Yankees in 1994, the Tampa Yankees have grown into a minor league clone of their MLB brethren—they’ve won five Florida State League titles, including back-to-back years in 2009-10.
Further strengthening the Yankee bond, the T-Yanks play all their home games at George M. Steinbrenner Field, the Spring Training facility of the Bronx Bombers. A scaled-down replica of Yankee Stadium, Steinbrenner Field is an 11,000-seat facility brimming with Yankee lore. The 31-acre complex even has a Monument Park, which honors the organization’s greatest players and beer vendors.
