TAMPA, Fla. (970 WFLA) - Steinbrenner Field is not only the Yankees' spring training complex. It's the home of the Tampa Yankees, the team's singe-A affiliate.
Not any more.
While the Yankees will continue to spring train there, the Tampa Yankees are moving to Ocala.
There's now a deal to have the minor league Yankees team move to a yet-to-be-built facility in Ocala. The Ocala city council will learn more about it today. It would would include a $45-million dollar complex.
The Yankees wanted to move the single-a team out of Tampa because there are too many other major league baseball and pro sports in this area to support minor league ball.
