Home Runs and History

The Tampa Baseball Museum at the Al Lopez House, along with the Ybor City Museum Society will host Homeruns & History, a free family-friendly event to celebrate the rich history of the game in Tampa.

Home Runs & History will feature appearances by Major League Baseball alumni, games, raffles, auctions, great prizes, book signings, vendors as well as an old-fashioned hot dog eating contest. It will also feature other baseball-inspired food, fun, and comradery celebrating the sport. A special outdoor exhibit will be on display, consisting of some of Tampa’s iconic baseball players representing multiple areas of Tampa, including Al Lopez (the first Tampa native to play in the major leagues), Wade Boggs, Lou Piniella, Tony La Russa, Tino Martinez and Gary Sheffield.

This event is being hosted in partnership with the Ybor City Saturday Market, an open air market that is located in Centennial Park every Saturday.
