The New York Yankees today announced the club's 2014 spring training schedule, featuring a total of 32 spring training games with 17 home games-including 16 Grapefruit League games against Major League opposition-at George M. Steinbrenner Field.
The Yankees will play their first spring game on February 25 at 1:05 p.m. against the Florida State University baseball team at Steinbrenner Field. The Yankees will play their first Major League spring game the next day, February 26 at 1:05 p.m. against the Pirates in Bradenton. The club's first home Major League spring game will take place on February 27 at 1:05 p.m. vs. Pittsburgh.
Home opponents include each of the Yankees' four American League East rivals - Baltimore (March 4 at 7:05 p.m. and March 13 at 1:05 p.m.), Tampa Bay (March 9 at 1:05 p.m.), Boston (March 18 at 1:05 p.m.) and Toronto (March 23 at 1:05 p.m.). The Yankees are scheduled to play four Friday games at Steinbrenner Field, with three of those games scheduled to begin at 7:05 p.m. (March 7 vs. Detroit, March 21 vs. Pittsburgh and March 28 vs. Miami). They will play two additional home night games on March 4 vs. Baltimore and March 25 vs. Philadelphia.

This will be the Yankees' 19th spring training at George M. Steinbrenner Field in Tampa. The complex was renamed for the Yankees' longtime Principal Owner on March 27, 2008, following two unanimous resolutions supporting the change issued by the Hillsborough County Commission and the Tampa City Council. The resolutions cited Mr. Steinbrenner's many charitable donations to youth activities, hospitals and the arts, and recognized his numerous extraordinary contributions to the area.
