This place is really super clean and inviting. Not a bad seat in the house. The Boss always did it right.

This is a well kept initmate ball park where the Yankees play in Spring Training. I always have more fun watching the workouts than actual Spring Training games because in workouts you get to see players up a little closer and get better glimpses into the mood of the team and what the individuals are working on. For baseball fanatics like me this look at "inside" baseball is a treat. I am no Yankee fan, but since I happened to be in Tampa, Steinbrenner Field was convenient. I took a long walk along Dale Maybury Drive to get there and that street is a bit funky with odd bars, gentleman's clubs, lingerie lounges and other assorted aspects of that eros industry which flourishes in Tampa. Whenever I go to Florida (Just about every year) I make sure I go at Spring Training time and make sure I am close enough to somebody's Spring Training site. You are far more separated from the players these days than in the old days, but as I said, for a more intimate glimpse of what is going on go there during workouts and not actual games. It also is fun to make an extra effort to find the minor league spring complex of the team you are visiting. There you can see future stars without the same restrictions as the major league club. Plus these minor leaguers are enthusiastic and really highly skilled compared to the rest of us. The Yanks single-A affiliate and minor league practice fields are just a short walk from Steinbrenner Field..

Spent a Sunday afternoon at the ball park during spring training. Our tickets were on the Tampa Tribune Party Deck, what a great place to sit. We got a ball during batting practice, awesome!!! Great seats in far right field, bar type seating with a counter to spread out beer, dogs, peanuts, etc. Home Run ball area, keep your head up! Excellent venue!!

I am a big baseball fan (but NOT a Yankee fan. The environment is fun, the vendor food is reasonable. Get there early. Usually hot, and most seats get direct sun, though with the movement of the sun, you get shadow relief also. Visit the specialty brew stands. A little pricey, but nice to support the small brew companies. Parking can be a little pricey also. You can park at Raymond James Stadium at less costs, but be prepared to walk in the heat. Nice, family atmosphere, and small environment allows for up close viewing of the action.
