Final Thoughts

As a Legends on Deck team, we were very much enjoyed following the Florida State League this season and watching the prospects making an impact on the Advanced-A level.  Our crew enjoyed all access passes for the Home Run Derby and All Star Game in Jupiter on June 15.  We look forward to many of these stars making their MLB debuts in the years to come.  As the MLB pennant races heat up and postseason begins, there is plenty of baseball left to write about this Fall.  As for the Florida State League , we look forward to covering another great season in 2020!
