Ybor City oral history project
Interview conducted April 24, 1980.
This is an oral history interview with baseball player Al Lopez. Lopez, the son of a cigar maker, describes his childhood in Ybor City, particularly the games and recreational activities enjoyed by Latin youths. He began playing minor league baseball in 1925 and moved up to the major leagues in 1928. In 1948 he started his managerial career in Indianapolis and managed first the Cleveland Indians and then the Chicago White Sox until his retirement in 1969. In this interview, Lopez describes his experiences as a professional baseball player and manager and discusses many of his fellow players. Lopez died in 2005 at the age of 97.
