Fans have been patiently waiting for news about what spring training would look like this season after a full year of fanless baseball. NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced recently that fans would be permitted in Yankee Stadium this regular season and almost immediately tickets went on sale on Yankees.com. This made many people wonder about spring training games since tickets still weren’t up for sale as late as Thursday. All the fears about another lost spring training were put to rest on Friday in a tweet from the George M. Steinbrenner Field Twitter account.

GMS field will be allowing 25% capacity for all spring training games this season. The field typically holds 11,o26 fans, meaning that only 2,756 fans will be lucky enough to attend.
Tickets are officially on sale, so if you are planning on making your way to Steinbrenner Field this season, I would suggest pulling out your credit card immediately.
