Step Up to the Plate.
Experience Tampa's baseball tradition.
There’s something special about baseball in Tampa. It started with a little boy dreaming of the big leagues. This boy, Al Lopez, became Tampa’s first Major League player, and the first Tampa native to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. Now, the place where he dreamt - his childhood home - welcomes fans to celebrate Tampa’s 125 years of baseball heritage.
In this home, more than 80 professional players and baseball greats from Tampa are honored, along with the people and places who shaped them: the sun-soaked fields in West Tampa and Ybor City, World Series-winning Little League teams, coaches with deep rosters.
