FORT MYERS, Fla. - The Florida State League Champion Fort Myers Miracle are excited to announce their 2019 Promotional Schedule, highlighted by back-to-back concerts on May 10 and 11 at Hammond Stadium.

Christian rock icon and American Idol alum Colton Dixon will perform following the May 10 game against Tampa in celebration of Faith and Family Night. There will also be a post-game fireworks show. The next evening is Country Night, presented by Cat Country 107.1, and the game will be followed by performances from country star Russell Dickerson and Uncle Kracker. The first 1,000 fans will receive a Royce Lewis bobblehead.

Aside from music, the 2019 season will feature several other prominent appearances at Hammond Stadium, including the Zooperstars on April 5, Star Wars characters on April 19, former WWE wrestler Rickie "The Dragon" Steamboat on April 20, Tom Guiry (Smalls) from The Sandlot on April 26, Russian Bar Trio on April 27, Bboy McCoy on May 17, Corbin Bernsen (Roger Dorn) from Major League on May 18, Leslie David Baker (Stanley) from The Office on June 28, and Christopher McDonald (Shooter McGavin) from Happy Gilmore on July 26.
