Spring Training FAQ's

Are Spring Training practices open to the public?

Spring Training practices are open to the public from the time players report up until the DAY BEFORE the first spring training game. Practices are generally held from 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. and admission is free.

PLEASE NOTE: Practice schedules are subject to change without notice. Parking is free in our main Steinbrenner Field HESS parking lot.

What time do the gates open for games?

For all 2020 Spring Training games at Steinbrenner Field, all gates will open to fans with valid tickets beginning two hours prior to the scheduled first pitch. Gates are located in the main plaza in front of the stadium (home plate entrance) and by right field. The right field entrance may be accessed via a ramp from the main plaza as well as via the Dale Mabry Highway pedestrian overpass that connects to the Raymond James Stadium parking lots, which will open three hours prior to the scheduled game start time. For those who would like to utilize a wheelchair-accessible entrance or elevator, entry to the stadium can be found by the home plate entrance to the left of the Steinbrenner Field lobby.

Thanks to a special partnership with Mastercard®, fans who prefer to arrive as early as possible may enter Steinbrenner Field beginning 2 hours and 20 minutes prior to the first pitch by showing their valid tickets and a Mastercard®.

Throughout the spring, fans attending home spring training Yankees games are strongly encouraged to arrive early and budget an appropriate amount of time for MLB-mandated metal detection screening upon entry.
