New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said Saturday the Yankees and Mets baseball teams would hold spring training in New York City this year. The Yankees will conduct spring training at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, while the Mets will conduct it at Citi Field in Queens.
Both teams will work with the State of New York to ensure proper health and safety protocols. The announcement occurred as businesses across the city prepared for phase two of reopening on Monday.
“In a bleak time and in a season that obviously had significant hurdles to deal with, to have a spring training camp in New York is the first bit of really good news when it comes to baseball that we’ve had in a long time,” said Cuomo. However, it’s not clear when games will be played at either venue this year, or whether fans will be allowed to attend.
