Here's your guide to Yankees Spring Training

MLB.com @BryanHoch

Coming off a season that saw the Yankees win their most regular-season games since 2009, yet exit for a second consecutive year at the hands of the eventual World Series champions, managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner has issued two challenges to his players: first, reclaim the American League East, then bring World Series title No. 28 to The Bronx.

That quest starts with Spring Training in Tampa, Fla., beginning next week. Here are some dates, games and players to know ahead of the start of spring camp.
