Yankees announce spring schedule

I’ve got to do some formating to get the actual schedule posted. For the qui

The New York Yankees today announced the club’s 2013 spring training schedule, featuring a total of 33 spring training games with 17 home games at George M. Steinbrenner Field.

The Yankees will play their first spring game on February 23 at 1:05 p.m. against Atlanta at Champion Stadium in Lake Buena Vista. The Yankees will host their first Major League spring home game the next day, February 24 at 1:05 p.m. vs. Toronto.

Due to the playing of the World Baseball Classic tournament, the 2013 spring schedule begins nine days earlier than last year, and marks the earliest start to the Yankees’ spring training game schedule in at least 65 years.

In addition to 16 Grapefruit League games, the Yankees will also play host to the Dominican Republic World Baseball Classic team on Wednesday, March 6 at Steinbrenner Field.

Home opponents include each of the Yankees’ four American League East rivals – Tampa Bay (March 24 at 1:05 p.m.), Boston (March 20 at 1:05 p.m.), Toronto (February 24 at 1:05 p.m. and February 28 at 1:05 p.m.) and Baltimore (March 27 at 1:05 p.m.). The schedule also features four home night games (7:05 p.m. start time): Atlanta on Tuesday, March 5; Philadelphia on Wednesday, March 13; Minnesota on Thursday, March 21 and new American League opponent Houston on March 26.

The Yankees will also host 2012 National League runner-up St. Louis on Monday, March 11, in the Cardinals’ first visit to Tampa since 2006. The Miami Marlins will make their first trip to Tampa since 2005 with a 1:05 p.m. game on Friday, March 15.

Season tickets for 2013 Yankees Spring Training home games are on sale now at or Individual-game spring tickets will go on sale on Friday, January 11 at 10:00 a.m. at the Steinbrenner Field box office, online at or by calling Ticketmaster at (800) 745-3000.

For ticket information, fans can call (813) 879-2244 or visit

Pitchers and catchers are scheduled to report on February 12, with their first workout scheduled for February 13. Position players are scheduled to report on February 17, with the club’s first full-squad workout scheduled for February 18.

This will be the Yankees’ 18th spring training at George M. Steinbrenner Field in Tampa. The complex was renamed for the Yankees’ longtime Principal Owner on March 27, 2008, following two unanimous resolutions supporting the change issued by the Hillsborough County Commission and the Tampa City Council. The resolutions cited Mr. Steinbrenner’s many charitable donations to youth activities, hospitals and the arts, and recognized his numerous extraordinary contributions to the area.

    So now that I just found out from a smartass posting as “sammiejohnson” that Soria signed a two-year $8M contract with Texas (because I have a life unlike him and some of you who post on here), I must say Cashman has done an AWFUL job this offseason outside of making moves any Yankees fan with zero general managing experience would’ve done (re-sign Kuroda, Pettitte, and Rivera.)

    Cashman offers Youkilis a year and $12M but won’t give Melky Cabrera two years at $8M a year and Soria two years at $4M a year.

    He’s basically offering Youkilis the price of 2013 or 2014 Cabrera and Soria – idiotic.

    Imagine Cabrera and Soria on this team right now. The Yankees outfield and bullpen would be set: Granderson LF, Gardner CF, Cabrera RF, Rivera/Robertson/Soria/Aardsma/Chamerlain/Logan/Rapada, Cabral, Miller, or Eppley bullpen.

    The Yanks could still re-sign Ichiro to be the DH who backs up in LF and RF and plays CF in a pinch / Yanks up or down 15-2 garbage time.)

    This would mean the Yanks could sign Jack Hannahan for 3B and be set with everything save the final slot on the bench.


    A little weak in the 7 and 8, but maybe Hannahan or Romine surprises.

    So what if Cabrera and Soria were on the books in 2014? Mo would most likely not be for at least $10M cleared (as he has bonuses which could earn him up to $12.5M.) Andy would most likely not be (another $12M off the books.) Ditto for Kuroda ($15M or if he re-signed, he’d probably re-sign for less say $11-12M for $3-4M saved.)

  3. Duh Innings II December 11th, 2012 at 5:08 pm

    BTW I did a Google search for news of Soria signing with Texas on Yankees Lohud and it wasn’t on here or if it was it wasn’t a headline which would come up in a search, just a brief mention with a link.

    So considering this is the only site I check for non-Yankee news, it’s reasonable that I didn’t know Cashman let Texas get who could’ve been one of three insurance closer options for the 2013 Yankees (the other two being Robertson and Aardsma) and the Yanks 2014 closer for$6M less / 40% of the base cost of 2013 Rivera, good job Cashman – idiot. And Soria said he would come here to pitch with Mo i.e. forfeit closing.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

    May I just say what a comfort to uncover someone that really knows what they are discussing on the net. You certainly know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. A lot more people should look at this and understand this side of the story. I was surprised that you aren’t more popular since you most certainly possess the gift.

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

    Throughout the grand pattern of things you get a B- for hard work. Where exactly you lost me was on the facts. You know, people say, details make or break the argument.. And it couldn’t be more accurate here. Having said that, permit me reveal to you what exactly did work. Your article (parts of it) is definitely rather powerful and this is probably why I am taking the effort in order to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. 2nd, although I can easily see the leaps in logic you come up with, I am not necessarily sure of how you appear to unite the points which help to make the final result. For right now I shall yield to your position but trust in the near future you connect your dots much better.
