March 28, 2014
Special to the Breeze , Cape Coral Daily Breeze

As the Major League Spring Training camps leave town this weekend, the Fort Myers Miracle soon will have their initial complement of players for the upcoming Florida State League season.

Beginning on April 3 and running through Aug. 31, the 23rd season of Miracle baseball features 140 games in 151 days with 62 home dates at Hammond Stadium, which features the addition of a brand new outfield boardwalk. The team's final eight home games will be played at JetBlue Park.

"We take great pride in giving people a reason to come to Miracle games and to make sure they have a great, entertaining time when they are here," said Miracle general manager Andrew Seymour. "Our team has put together a summer of fun and we're looking forward to delivering smiles and memories right from the very first pitch."

The Miracle open the season on Thursday, April 3, on the road against the Jupiter Hammerheads. After the first two games away, the Miracle host the Hammerheads for Opening Night on Saturday, April 5, ending with the first of six fireworks shows throughout the summer.

Wendy's and HESS Express have teamed up with the Miracle and acquired tickets to Opening Night and will distribute them at no cost to their customers. Fans can pick up a general admission ticket at local Wendy's restaurants and HESS Express stations in Lee and Collier Counties beginning Friday.

For $2, fans can upgrade a complimentary ticket to a box seat by visiting the Hammond Stadium ticket office beginning at 9 a.m. Monday. The first 5,000 fans to enter the gates receive a Miracle magnetic 2014 schedule.

Five more fireworks shows are on the schedule during the summer.

The Miracle play 16 home games in April, including two games following local high school games. On April 18 at 3:30 p.m., Island Coast High School plays Cape Coral High before the Miracle host the St. Lucie Mets at 7:05 p.m.

Fans are in for a special treat on April 15 as Hammond Stadium plays host to a collegiate game between the Florida Gators and FGCU at 6:30 p.m.

In May, the Miracle have 12 home games, 19 in June and celebrate 4th of July with an afternoon game at 12:35 p.m.

The Miracle return daily special favorites like 2-4-1 Tuesdays, Thirsty Thursdays, Fill'er Up Fridays and SINK or SWIM Saturdays. New this year are Ladies' Night Wednesdays and SUBWAY Sundays.

Standard start times for games at Hammond Stadium and JetBlue Park this season are 7:05 p.m. for Monday through Friday games. Saturday games begin at 6:05 and Sunday games start at 4:05.

Ticket prices in advance remain the same: $8.50 ($9.50 for fireworks nights) for box seats/drink rail seating and $6.50 ($7.50 for fireworks nights) for general admission/lawn seating sections.

All ticket prices increase by $1.50 when purchased on the day of game.
