The Gulf Coast League Yankees (or GCL Yankees) are the Rookie League affiliate of Major League Baseball's New York Yankees. The GCL Yankees play in Tampa, Florida at the Yankee Complex. The team is composed mainly of players who are in their first year of professional baseball either as draftees or non-drafted free agents from the United States, Canada, Dominican Republic, Venezuela, and other countries.

The GCL Yankees have won the Gulf Coast League championship four times, in 2004, 2005, 2007 and 2011.

History[edit]

In 2004, the Gulf Coast Yankees swept the Gulf Coast Red Sox to become the 2004 Gulf Coast League Champions. In 2005, the GCL Yankees swept the Gulf Coast Mets in the best-of-three series to win the Gulf Coast League championship again. In 2007, the GCL Yankees defeated the Gulf Coast Dodgers to claim the title again. The team defeated the Gulf Coast Marlins in the 2011 Gulf Coast League championship series.
