Two 2016 Columbia Fireflies were honored with organizational awards by the New York Mets on Monday night. P.J. Conlon was named Mets Minor League Pitcher of the Year and third baseman David Thompson garnered Columbia's Sterling Award.
Labor Day marked the end of the inaugural season of Columbia Fireflies baseball at Spirit Communications Park. For the first time in 12 years, professional baseball returned to the Midlands, and what happened between April 7 and September 5 did not disappoint.
The Fireflies are excited to host the first local high school football games at Ballpark Digest's 2016 Ballpark of the Year. Three games are scheduled to be played this fall as part of the Palmetto Health-USC Medical Group Orthopedics Pigskin in the Park Series.
The Columbia Fireflies have announced that the city of Columbia, the Fireflies and Spirit Communications Park have been awarded the 2017 South Atlantic League All-Star Game.
The Columbia Fireflies, in conjunction with the South Atlantic League, have released the team's schedule for the second season of professional baseball at Spirit Communications Park in downtown Columbia.
Ballpark Digest honored Spirit Communications Park as its 2016 Ballpark of the Year on Tuesday. The home of the Columbia Fireflies - the New York Mets' South Atlantic League affiliate - was selected as the top park across Minor League Baseball nationally for 2016.
