Two Months of Incredible Fun at the Yankees Spring Training
What Is Spring Training?
The Yankees Spring Training is a once-in-a-lifetime trip for any fan out there. Since the tradition started in 1870, baseball teams all across America head to warmer regions in Florida or Arizona to practice each year. The New York Yankees moved their sessions permanently to Tampa, FL, back in 1996 when the Steinbrenner Field opened.
On top of having two souvenir shops, this stunning stadium is paved with memorials honoring New York’s history. You can find a mini version of New York monuments, for example, as well as a memorial dedicated to the victims of 9/11. An actual piece of steel from the World Trade Center is built inside of it.
