It’s time for peanuts and crackerjacks and good times with island friends!
Join us tomorrow night when we commemorate the 25th anniversary of one of Sanibel’s most beloved traditions: Sam Bailey’s Islands Night at Hammond Stadium.
Islands Night began in 1993 by beloved islander Sam Bailey as a way to celebrate the special community we have on Sanibel and Captiva. It’s become a night for us to kick back and enjoy a baseball game with friends, neighbors, and business partners while giving back to our island communities. Proceeds from Islands Night benefit the Sam Bailey Scholarship Fund along with select area non-profits. Over the past two decades, Islands Night has raised more than $150K in donations.
The family-fun event begins tomorrow night with a grand parade followed by a baseball game hosted by our hometown team, the Fort Myers Miracle. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and the parade begins at 5:50 p.m. The Miracle team takes the field at 6:35 p.m. against the Charlotte Stone Crabs.
If you still need tickets, pick yours up — free of charge — at our front desk. See you at the ballpark!
