TAMPA STADIUM & AL LOPEZ FIELD

2US FL 924

TAMPA STADIUM: Tampa Bay Buccaneers (NFL) (1976-1997) Can-Am Bowl (NCAA) (1977-1979) Outback Bowl (NCAA) (1986-1998) Florida Classic (NCAA) (1978-1996) University of Tampa (NCAA) (1967-1974) Tampa Bay Rowdies (NASL) (1975-1984) Tampa Bay Bandits (USFL) (1983-1985) Tampa Bay Mutiny (MLS) (1996-1998) USF (NCAA) (1997)

Tampa Stadium (known as Houlihan's Stadium from 1996 to 1998, and nicknamed "The Big Sombrero" due to its shape) was a sports venue located in Tampa, Florida. The stadium is most closely associated with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers National Football League franchise, which played all of their home games in the stadium from 1976 through 1997. It was demolished following the construction of Raymond James Stadium (sometimes referred to as "The New Sombrero" despite its unsombrero-like design) which opened in 1998.

AL LOPEZ FIELD: Chicago White Sox (MLB) (spring training) (1955-1959) Tampa Tarpons (FSL) (1957-1988) Cincinnati Reds (MLB) (spring training) (1960-1987)

Al Lopez Field was a spring training and Minor League baseball park in Tampa, Florida, United States. It was named for Tampa native and Baseball Hall of Famer Al Lopez. After the spring session of 1987, the Reds abandoned the park for newer facilities in Plant City, Florida. While the Tampa Tarpons reached an affiliation agreement with the Chicago White Sox for the 1988 season, revenue from leasing the ballpark to the Tarpons did not cover expenses and the Tampa Sports Authority would not agree to a lease longer than one-year. This would also allow the TSA to move forward on redevelopment plans for the location. Demolition on the ballpark began in March 1989 and was completed that May.
