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.
