It’s time for the three Bs: brats, beer, and baseball. This summer’s season is packed full of games and events. From fun initiatives like brunch and batting practice to Tail Waggin’ Tuesdays, the summer is just heating up for the Tarpons.

About the team

The Tampa Tarpons are the single-A affiliate of the New York Yankees — in fact, the team was previously named the Tampa Yankees. They play at George M. Steinbrenner Field, which has the exact same dimensions as Yankee Stadium and serves as the Yankees’ spring training field.

Upcoming games

On Tuesday, July 4 we hit the road to take on Dunedin at 6:30 p.m. Catch the game on the MiLB First Pitch app. Or watch at Ferg’s Sports Bar (320 Central Ave., St. Petersburg) while the Rays take on the Phillies.
