Robbie Alomar walked into the clubhouse of historic Al Lang Field on the night of Friday March 18, 2005 and took off his Tampa Bay Devil Rays uniform.

Alomar had made two errors in the same inning and struck out in his only at-bat against his old team, the Toronto Blue Jays.

After the game, his first since missing 10 due to tightness and soreness in his back, Alomar headed up the stairs to manager Lou Piniella’s office.

“I told Lou, I’m done, I don’t feel like playing anymore,” said Alomar on Monday morning looking back nine springs, now back in the same clubhouse and back in uniform wearing a red Baseball Canada uniform as a guest coach with the Junior National Team.
