Can it be? Yes, just 8 weeks until Spring Training begins for most MLB teams. The work has already begun in the front office for teams like the New York Yankees, with the free agent signings of Aroldis Chapman and Matt Holliday. If you think those two are major additions, wait until you see the changes the Yankees are making to Steinbrenner Field in Tampa.The New Look at Steinbrenner Field
Work has begun on a $40 million renovation project at the Yankees’ Spring Training home, elevating George M. Steinbrenner Field, the largest spring ballpark in Florida, to an even higher, elite level.
Improvements to the 20-year-old ballpark include new experiences for the fans including new seats throughout, a new larger entry plaza in right field and a 360 degree walk around with a left field deck. The renovations also add loge boxes, cabanas, a new and improved right field terrace, and two-level clubs in right and left field.
The $40 million price tag is being shared by the Yankees, Hillsborough County, and the state of Florida.
And the agreement ensures that the Yankees will keep their Spring Training home in Tampa through the year 2046.
A good thing, because Spring Training Season tickets are On-Sale Now, with single tickets on-sale starting January 13th.
