Al Lopez Award

Nice to see Al Lopez III and his son, who are the grandson and great grandson of Al Lopez, present the Al Lopez Award to Reid Brignac before the game. The award is given annually to the team’s top rookie during Spring Training.

Al Lopez, is a member of baseball’s Hall of Fame and hails from Tampa, so I had the privilege of knowing him professionally and as a friend. He was a great ambassador for baseball and he was a great friend to those who knew him. We all miss “The Senior.”
