Share your memories from Al Lang Field



Sp_261856_shad_rays_01 Friday marks the end of an era at Al Lang Field, when the Tampa Bay Rays are scheduled to play their last spring training game, against the Cincinnati Reds.

The game signals the end of a more than 90-year history between the city of St. Petersburg and spring training, decades that spawned countless ballpark memories for residents and visitors.

Share your memories here and we'll highlight them on and possibly in the St. Petersburg Times on Saturday.

Check the Times on Friday for a series of ballpark memories by famous baseball players.
