As baseball players prepare to come to Tampa, Florida for Yankees Spring Training, construction workers are preparing to come to the Yankees minor league complex to make upgrades, reports Anthony McCarron of the New York Daily News.
The Yankees are renovating the facility, adding a building that will house meeting rooms, a cafeteria for the players and upgrading the four diamonds in the complex. There is also talk the Yankees could possibly add a dormitory for prospects.
“These fields have been here since Johnny Bench was an 18-year-old,” said Mark Newman, the Yankees’ senior vice president of baseball operations, referring to when the Reds owned the complex years ago.
Along with upgrading the complex, Newman also states the Yankees have added other staff and scouts for the 2014 season.
