Yankees Field #2

A look at Yankees Field #2 from the first-base bleacher.

From the batter’s vantage point, Raymond James Stadium looms in the background.

Quick Facts: Rating: None
This field, sometimes referred to as Yankees Community Field, is immediately adjacent to George M. Steinbrenner Field, the spring home of the Yankees and also the home of the Tampa Tarpons of the Florida State League.

In addition to Gulf Coast League games, the field is also the home to the Hawks of Hillsborough Community College, whose campus is immediately adjacent. Both the college and the Yankees use land once occupied by Drew Field, which was Tampa’s airport before it expanded to the west.

Each spring, the Yankees host the University of Tampa and several visiting teams in a season-opening event. Some games are played on Steinbrenner Field, while some are played here.
