The Class A-Advanced affiliate of their eponymous MLB brethren, the Tampa Yankees took home Florida State League championships in 2009 and 2010. After missing the playoffs in 2011, this year's club has regained its momentum with a North Division-leading 29–18 record in the second half through August 9, including a league-best 18–7 mark at home. Outfielder Ramon Flores leads the charge, having compiled a .300 batting average, 20 stolen bases, and 70 runs scored through 111 games this season. And first baseman Kyle Roller has managed to wallop 18 home runs in his first 103 games without the rampant use of bionic arms that has scandalized the majors.
During the August 23 game against the division's first-half champion Blue Jays, a Thirsty Thursday promotion douses nerves throughout the ballpark with discounted drinks as Plutonian mascot Blue entertains the crowd. Outside the 11,000-seat George M. Steinbrenner Field, fans can explore a 31-acre complex replete with a monument park honoring former Yankee greats or sleuth around for the giant footprints left by current New York players during their spring training.
