Fort Myers is blessed with not one, but two major league teams that take up winter residence to prepare for a successful baseball season.
The Minnesota Twins call Hammond Stadium “home” for six weeks each spring, opening up their practice games to thousands of spectators.
Since Ocean’s Reach hosts many Minnesota snowbirds, we thought you’d like to see one of your favorite players in action, Joe Mauer, at the new CenturyLink Sports Complex which houses Hammond Stadium, five additional playing fields, and the new Twins Player Development Academy.
This year marked the 27th Spring Training season for the Twins in sunny Fort Myers. That’s a whole lot of peanuts and Cracker Jacks!
