The Boston Braves first held Spring Training at the site in 1922, with New York Yankees and St. Louis Cardinals later moving in. The first Al Lang Field was built in 1947. The upgraded and improved current concrete bowl opened in 1977 as Al Lang Stadium, in continuing tribute the St. Petersburg booster and mayor, who first brought Major League teams to town. With the naming rights sold to Florida Power, a local electric utility, in 1998 when the Tampa Bay Devil Rays took up home at Florida Power Park at Al Lang Field, with Progress Energy, Fortune 500 energy company, taking over naming rights in 2003. In addition to being a Grapefruit League venue, it has served as home for several Florida State League teams until 2000. Only a mile away, the regular season home, Tropicana Field, of the Tampa Bay Rays is visible from the third base side stands.
