The Tampa Tarpons are a Minor League Baseball team based in Tampa, Florida. They are members of the Florida State League (FSL) and are the Class A-Advanced affiliate of the New York Yankees Major League Baseball team. Home games are played at George M. Steinbrenner Field, which is also the spring training home of the New York Yankees and incorporates design elements from old Yankee Stadium in the Bronx.

The team was established in 1994 as the Tampa Yankees and played for twenty-three seasons under that name. Before the 2018 season, the team was rebranded as the "Tampa Tarpons", reviving a name that had been used by an earlier FSL franchise for over thirty years.[2] Since their inception, the club has won five league championships, in 1994, 2001, 2004, 2009, and 2010.

The city of Tampa has a long history of minor league and spring training baseball. However, when the original Tampa Tarpons of the Florida State League (FSL) were sold and relocated in 1988 and Al Lopez Field was demolished soon thereafter, Tampa was without a professional baseball team or venue. In 1994, the New York Yankees established a new team in the Class A-Advanced FSL and placed them in Tampa. Prior to the 2018 season, the team was known as the Tampa Yankees; however, they were rebranded in 2019 as the Tampa Tarpons, in reference to the previous FSL team.[3]

Notable major league players to once play for Tampa are Derek Jeter, Rubén Rivera, Mariano Rivera, David Robertson, Joba Chamberlain, Ian Kennedy, Phil Hughes, Ramiro Mendoza, Tim Raines, Eric Milton, and Luis Sojo.

In 2012 the Steinbrenner family sold an interest in the team to Film Producer Armando Gutierrez. [4]

Playing field

As part of a deal with the city of Tampa, the Tampa Sports Authority agreed to finance and built a new baseball park for the New York Yankees to use during spring training and the Tampa Yankees to use during the summer. The Tampa Yankees played their first two seasons (1994 and 1995) at Red McEwen Field on the campus of the University of South Florida while their permanent home was under construction. In 1996, they moved to Legends Field, where the playing field had the same dimensions as the major league Yankee's then-home of Yankee Stadium and included some design elements of the ballpark in the Bronx. In 2008, Legends Field was renamed George M. Steinbrenner Field in honor of ailing long-time Yankees owner George Steinbrenner, who lived in Tampa.

Steinbrenner Field seats 10,000 fans, and sits across Dale Mabry Highway from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' home of Raymond James Stadium. A pedestrian bridge allows for baseball attendees to easily use the football stadium's much larger parking lot.
