Our beautiful stadium--Home of the Spring Training MN Twins and Fort Myers Miracle!
The Miracle are currently 34-19 and in FIRST PLACE IN THE FSL SOUTH! We’re (not that I technically play but…) 6 1/2 games ahead of the Charlotte Rays, our I-75 rival. After a few bumpy games in the past week or so, including a season long 3-game losing streak, we’ve (again, there is no jersey bearing my last name on the back) beat Clearwater the past two nights by 1 run a piece. LHP Spencer Steedley is 4-0 with an 0.67 ERA and Ben Revere is hitting .339 through last night. The All-Star game is coming up on June 20th (and it’s @ our stadium!) and we have a record 8 All-Stars on the South team, including, P David Bromberg, P Spencer Steedley, P Carlos Gutierrez (will not play due to AA promotion), C Danny Lehmann, OF Ben Revere, SS Chris Cates, OF Chris Parmelee, and IF Steve Singleton.
