FORT MYERS, Fla. - June 21, 2024 - PRLog -- Former MLB player and manager Clint Hurdle will headline the Fort Myers Mighty Mussels' 2024 Family Faith Night, a June 29 celebration of fellowship, family and baseball.

Hurdle, who was raised on Florida's east coast, enjoyed a playing career that spanned 10 seasons with the Kansas City Royals, Cincinnati Reds, New York Mets and St. Louis Cardinals. The right fielder had a .259 career batting average and was never named to an All-Star team, but experienced more success as a coach and manager. His managerial record was 1,269 wins and 1,345 losses over 17 seasons with the Colorado Rockies and Pittsburgh Pirates. In 2013, Hurdle led the Pirates to a 94-68 regular season record and earned National League Manager of the Year honors.

Hurdle has been outspoken about how faith helped him get back on track after failed marriages, alcoholism and the pressure to perform at high levels.

"Clint is a baseball lifer who has been around the game for generations and either played with or coached many of our childhood idols," said John Martin, managing partner of the Mighty Mussels. "But he also has a great message about the importance of faith and family, and we're excited to welcome him at Family Faith Night."

First pitch for Family Faith Night is scheduled for 6:05 p.m. Hurdle will sign autographs for fans from 7:15 to 8:45 p.m. before delivering a 60-minute postgame discussion focused on faith and baseball.

Family Faith Night highlights a six-game homestand against the Tampa Tarpons that runs from June 25-30, which also includes Celebrate Everblades Day on June 26 to honor the hockey team's third consecutive Kelly Cup championship.

Mighty Mussels tickets start at $10 and are available at MightyMussels.com (https://www.milb.com/fort-myers).
