This field's great claim to fame is the regular arrival of the New York Yankees to practice here during the cool spring months. Opened in 1996, the stadium formerly known as Legends Field, has played host to numerous shows and musicians (Rod Stewart, Natalie Merchant, Moody Blues, Sting), Florida State High School Championships, Preliminary Olympic Baseball and former president George W. Bush.
The stadium, located on 31 acres in the heart of Tampa directly across from Raymond James Stadium, has a seating capacity of 11,000, plus 12 luxury suites with a capacity of 20 guests each. It is identical in field dimensions to Yankee Stadium. The field is also home to the Hillsborough Community College Hawks. Additionally, the Tampa Yankees, founded in 1994, practice and play using this field. The team won the Florida State League Championship in 1994, 2001 and 2004.
A gift shop, pub, concessions stand and ATM are all readily available in the stadium.
