#FGCU and No. 9 Florida Set to do Battle at Hammond Stadium
The FGCU baseball team (24-13, 9-3 Atlantic Sun) will visit Hammond Stadium, the home of the Fort Myers Miracle and spring training home of the Minnesota Twins, tomorrow night for an instate showdown with No. 9 Florida (23-13, 9-6 SEC) in a rubber match to determine who can claim bragging rights for 2014.
This is sixth-straight season that the Eagles have hosted at least one game in Hammond Stadium and the pair of games this year will bring the total number of FGCU games played there to ten. The Green and Blue played three games at Hammond Stadium during their inaugural season in 2003, returned in 2009 for a game with Florida and have played one game there every year since against either Miami (Fla.) or Florida. In the first matchup at Hammond this season, the Eagles fell 5-2 to No. 25 Miami in extra innings.
