Playing baseball takes coordination, upper-body strength, and the courage to run counterclockwise even though that direction is normally only for the immoral and weak-hearted. See strong-willed Americans with this Groupon.

The Scouting Report
On the heels of a solid 2013 campaign in which they earned a playoff berth, the Miracle have started the 2014 season off on a winning note. In the season-opener on April 3, the Miracle traveled to Jupiter and dominated the Hammerheads—a South Division rival—in a 5–1 victory to open this year's campaign. Starting pitcher Justin Wheeler hurled 5.2 solid innings, and eight Miracle players had at least one hit in the contest, including a triple from centerfielder Max Kepler. The club will look to sustain that offensive balance as the season wears on.
Fort Myers Miracle
Like the Fort Myers Palms and the Miami Hustlers, Marlins, and Orioles before them, the Fort Myers Miracle continue a tradition of minor league baseball in South Florida that dates back to 1926. Under the stewardship of partial owners Jimmy Buffet and Bill Murray, the Miracle is now a Class A affiliate of the Minnesota Twins that faces off against rival Florida State League teams in front of crowds of up to 8,500 in Hammond Stadium. In 2014, the Miracle collected 87 wins and claimed their first FSL title since moving to the Sunshine State in 1992. Even before that, though, the team experienced much success, producing players who have gone on to play in the FSL all-star game, the major leagues, and community theater productions of The Sandlot.
