The Fort Myers Miracle baseball team changed its name to the Fort Myers Mighty Mussels, effective yesterday.
Andrew Kaufmann, CEO and owner of Zawyer Sports, which owns the team, announced the name change Tuesday during a VIP event at Hammond Stadium attended by elected officials, community and business leaders, corporate sponsors, media and baseball fans.
Mussel Man, a hulk of an animated clam, will share mascot duties with Sway, the lovable, oversized palm tree that’s been pumping up fans at Hammond Stadium since 2015.
The Mighty Mussels will remain a Class-A Advanced Affiliate of the Minnesota Twins and play home games at CenturyLink Sports Complex. The franchise began in 1926 as the Fort Myers Palms, a name that paid tribute to the city’s stately royal palm trees.
