Florida has the perfect climate for year-round sporting events like baseball and golf. Are you looking for a great outdoor venue for yourself, friends, and family? Here’s a local gem you do not want to miss.
On Saturday, September 18, 2021, at the beautiful Hammond Stadium CenturyLink Sports Complex, the Fort Myers Mighty Mussels defeated the Tampa Tarpons 3-0 in a seven-inning no-hitter led by the pitching team consisting of Regi Grace Jr, Landon Leach, Brad Hanner, and Matthew Swain.
The Fort Myers Mighty Mussels are a Minor League Baseball team of the Low-A Southeast and the Low-A affiliate of the Minnesota Twins, playing their home games at Hammond Stadium. The Tampa Tarpons are an affiliate of the New York Yankees Major League Baseball team based in Tampa, Florida.
This was a special night for friends and families and their pets with kids in baseball uniforms with baseball gloves hoping to catch a game ball. Beautiful weather, a spotlessly clean stadium, great food and drink, and yes, it was even “bring your dog to the game”! With all the game’s excitement and first no-hitter in a decade, one family pooch was worn out and eventually carried out by his dad, kids trailing behind with mom.
This is a perfect venue for family and friends. People were smiling, children laughing, and it was a pleasure to watch all the activity. There was barbecue with all the trimmings for the Cape Coral Newcomer’s Club set up nicely in an area above the dugout, and I enjoyed a delicious sausage and pepper sandwich from the concession area. It’s affordable, safe, clean, with plenty of parking and great food. With a seating capacity of 7,500, you can host an event and bring all your friends and family.
