Last year’s 13th overall draft pick, NCAA Player of the Year and former Eagle Ace Chris Sale shined the spotlight on FGCU baseball. In December of 2010, the 10th annual Pro Scout Day enticed 29 out of 30 MLB teams to Swanson Stadium to scout the handful of draft picks and eager Eagles.


Highlighted by 2008 Ryder Cup Captain Paul Azinger, FGCU baseball hosted Dinner on the Diamond and celebrity golf tournament in December. With each plate donated to FGCU Athletics, fans dined with MLB and PGA professionals: PGA Professional Derek Lamely, Cubs pitcher Casey Coleman, White Sox LHP Chris Sale, the Astros’ Rookie of the Year Chris Johnson, Pirates RHP Chris Resop and Indian’s first baseman Matt LaPorta.
