Pictures: Ghosts of Spring Baseball: Tinker Field
Tinker Field in Orlando, where Harmon Killebrew used to try to bash baseballs off the face of the nearby Citrus Bowl, has sat idle since the Minnesota Twins left 20 years ago. The ballpark, named for Joe Tinker, the legendary Chicago Cubs shortstop who moved to Orlando in 1920, was first dedicated in 1923 and re-dedicated in 1963.

Tinker Field: 1920s
The Cincinnati Reds play in Orlando in the 1920s at Tinker Field. Joe Tinker had managed the team for a time before his move to the city in 1921, and in 1923 he persuaded them to come to Orlando for spring training.
