The New York Yankees are a professional baseball team based in the Bronx, New York City. The Yankees compete in Major League Baseball (MLB) as a member club of the American League (AL) East division. They are one of two major league clubs based in New York City, the other being the New York Mets of the National League. In baseball, spring training is a series of practices and exhibition games preceding the start of the regular season. Spring training allows new players to try out for roster and position spots, and gives established players practice time prior to competitive play. Spring training has always attracted fan interest, drawing crowds who travel to warm climates to enjoy the sun and watch their favorite teams play ball. The Yankees hold their spring training every year in Tampa, Florida at George Steinbrenner Field.

Players report to spring training for physical examinations and to begin preparing for the upcoming season by participating in practices and exhibition games. Pitchers and catchers report first, followed by position players a week later.

The first spring training game is typically played against college or minor league teams and lasts about three hours. The remainder of spring training games are generally played against other Major League Baseball teams and last about nine innings.
