Al Lang Field at Progress Energy Park has a storied history and a stunning waterfront setting. Al Lang, St. Petersburg's "Mr. Baseball," brought Major League Baseball spring training to St. Petersburg. Nine different teams called the city home, beginning with the St. Louis Browns in 1914. By 1940, voters agreed a modern ballpark was needed. It opened in 1947, named for Mr. Baseball and was the spring home of the St. Louis Cardinals. In 1977, when the renovations for this 6,439-seat ballpark were completed, it kept Lang's name.

From 1998 until 2008, the Tampa Bay Rays held spring training here. 

Now it's home to the Tampa Bay Rowdies professional soccer team, and it hosts an international baseball league for a short time in the spring.

The facility has also been used for band competitions, antique and classic car shows and concerts. A popular farmers market sets up in its parking lot every Saturday.
