Hall of Fame Manager Casey Stengel jokingly wants former fellow Hall of Famer White Sox Manager Al Lopez out of the rocking chair so he can have a turn, but Al refuses to move. It was one of many gifts from the people of Tampa, Florida on March 23, 1970 at the ballpark that was named after him on Al Lopez Day at Al Lopez Field. The senor was born in Tampa, would be a lifelong resident and also pass away in Tampa.
