Yankees’ class-A affiliate makes Tom Brady an offer after he’s thrown out of Tampa park

A New York Yankees‘ minor-league team is reaching out to Tom Brady, the star quarterback of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, as he looks for a place to train and work out after he was kicked out of a local park.

The Tampa Tarpons, the Yankees’ Class A-Advanced affiliate, made its pitch this week. On Monday, news broke that Brady, signed as a free agent by the Bucs this offseason, was sent home as he was trying to work out on a nearby park while it was closed because of the current coronavirus outbreak.

“Hey @TomBrady……..We know of a #TampaPark you can workout at,” the official Tampa Tarpons account tweeted, throwing a mention at the stellar, decorated signal caller.

The Tarpons play their home games at the George M. Steinbrenner Field, which is the Yankees’ spring training complex.

The Associated Press reported that Tampa mayor Jane Castor said during a Monday news briefing that “park staff had caught him working out alone at a downtown park and told him he had to leave. The park was closed due to COVID-19.”

In an attempt to keep the virus from spreading even more, authorities around the United States, including Florida, are prompting people to stay in their houses.

After the report came to prominence, the city of Tampa tweeted at Brady. “Sorry @TomBrady! Our @tampaparksrec team can’t wait to welcome you and our entire community back with even bigger smiles — until then, stay safe and stay home as much as you can to help flatten the curve,” it said.

Maybe the Yankees and their affiliate can convince Brady… but here’s hoping he can stay home working out there, as he should be the most valuable piece for a Buccaneers roster that is trying to make a deep postseason run. The former Patriots’ quarterback signed a two-year, $50 million deal. Fun fact: he’s renting Derek Jeter’s mansion.
