Report: Yankees could move High-A affiliate out of Tampa

According to Baseball America — and apparently first reported by the Ocala Star Banner — the Yankees have reached an agreement to move their High-A affiliate from Tampa to Ocala, Fla. Despite having reached an agreement, the deal won’t be done until it’s voted on and approved.

The impact would seem to be relatively minimal. The Yankees would keep their spring training in Tampa, but getting the High-A team out of a major city might create some actual local buzz about a team that’s easily overshadowed in the Tampa market.

This information doesn’t come as a shock. The possibility has been floating out there for a while.

And a tip of the cap to the boys over at River Ave. Blues. I didn’t see the BA report until they posted it.
