    I'm going to a few games at the end of the week. One is an afternoon game and one is a night game. Do the players sign autographs at the games? Do they work out in the morning when they have games at night and do the players sign autographs then? Any info will be helpful. Thank you.

    I attended a game there last week, sat in the upper stands during a night game. The traffic on Dale Mabry is not very noticeable at all. The scoreboard, batter's eye, and right field picnic area pretty much block out those distractions.

    Do they leave the RF diamond on the auxiliary field in all year? Or is that only during spring training?

    Or as it's said in Philly, wit or witout.

    If you have a fear of heights like I do, man that Bridge will test your nerves!

    Yeah that's Dale Mabry, one of if not the largest and longest road in Tampa. It goes from the city limits by Lutz in the North all the way to McDill Air Force base that butts against the Bay. It has between 2 and 5 lanes on each side depending on your location. They call it a highway, but don't think of a interstate or express just a big road.

    You don't really notice it when you are watching the games. I worked there for the Tampa Yankees when there were 500 people and I still didn't notice from the regular seats, I'm sure the new additions in the outfield or down the 1st base side might be more pron to it, but probably nothing horrible.

    I more so notice the marshy area behind Left Field

    Reviving this old thread during spring training because I was watching Yankee highlights tonight, and had no idea that the road behind the stadium was such a major thoroughfare, thought I was watching old Crosley Field highlights. Yankee fans, does that detract from the enjoyment of the game, especially in the right field concourse area? I just came back from the Mets' Tradition Field in Port St Lucie where I go every year, and I thoroughly enjoy the quieter atmosphere, the bucolic berm past the outfield, birds tweeting etc. as I watch the spring games there, and couldn't possibly imagine the enjoyment being the same with cars constantly whizzing by, wondering what others think.

    P.S. my first summer job was at lengends working the concession and that is where I learned that people are very particular about their food, which is funny because its a ballpark shouldn't people realize its going to be very universal as far as the food goes?

    The thing I love about legends is although they don't have open concourses like bright house field in Clearwater, they do have huge concourses that are very open to the backside of the stadium which allows a great spring breeze!

    Thanks guys! I'll do my best with pictures, I'm only going to one game and I'll be in Orlando the rest of the week, so I'll see what I can do in one day.

    I went to spring training in 2009 and 2010. I attended one of the morning work outs and parked in the stadium parking and that was free of charge. The team was using one of the side fields for pitchers and catchers, so you can walk up right to the fence and watch the work outs. Players come up to the fence some times and will sign things. Goose Gossage (great guy) came over to the fence and spent a good 45 minutes signing autographs for everyone.





    I also attended a game and parked on the other side of the street next to the Buccaneers Stadium and walked across the bridge.

    I found Tampa and GMS field very easy to get around. Very friendly staff also.
