The Yankees have responded to reports out of Florida that the team is considering moving at least part of its operation out of Tampa, where the team currently has its spring training facility and and its High-A affiliate.
Here’s the statement from the Yankees.
“Reports today that the New York Yankees are considering moving the spring training facility from Tampa are completely erroneous. The Yankees are in very preliminary discussions regarding the possibility of a partial sale of their Single-A Tampa minor league affiliate to a potential group of Orange County, Fla., investors. The investors will make an announcement tomorrow. These exploratory conversations will have no impact on the Yankees’ spring training facility or the Major League team.”
