One hundred years ago today, the Chicago Cubs and St. Louis Browns played the first spring training game between major-league clubs when they met at Plant Field on the grounds of the Tampa Bay Hotel (now the University of Tampa). The Cubs trained in Tampa the previous year but did not play any major-league teams. The Browns were in their first year training in St. Petersburg. The Cubs committed six errors but won 6-2.

Former Rays OF Fernando Perez visited Rays camp Tuesday. He is best remembered for scoring the winning run in Game 2 of the 2008 ALCS when he scored from third in the bottom of the 12th inning on B.J. Upton’s bases-loaded sacrifice fly to give the Rays a 9-8 victory.

It’s in the hole

Catcher Curt Casali shot a hole-in-one Monday on the 11th hole at Bobcat Trail in North Port. It was his first hole-in-one.
