The Fort Myers Mighty Mussels will return to Hammond Stadium on April 26 for a six-game series against the Clearwater Threshers.

Homestand highlights include a celebrity appearance by Brian Baumgartner, an actor from The Office, the first of five Beerfest events this season and two games where fans are encouraged to dress in costumes – Halfway to Halloween Night and Star Wars Night.

“Our opening homestand was an enormous success, and thanks to our new partnership with BRANDT, we are able to offer more gameday promotions that appeal to fans of all ages,” said Team President Chris Peters. “It’s not always easy to find affordable family fun in Southwest Florida, so our goal is to create an environment where everyone leaves the ballpark with a smile on their face.”

The Mighty Mussels recently announced BRANDT, an Illinois-based agricultural company that helps farms adopt new and profitable technologies, as a presenting sponsor for the 2022 season.
