Leesburg Lightning

The Leesburg Lightning and Head Coach, Frank Viola, enter the 2010 season as the defending champions of the Florida Collegiate Summer League, a wood bat collegiate baseball league that offers top- level competition that many believe represents the highest level of pre-professional amateur baseball in America. The Lightning is the first team in FCSL history to repeat as champions, winning the title in 2007 and 2009. Their games are played at Pat Thomas Stadium/Buddy Lowe Field, where they continue to set league attendance records, averaging nearly 1,000 fans per game. Games take on a festive atmosphere as their mascot “Striker” entertains the fans and the kids participate in events like the “Rubber Chicken Chuck” and “Race the Bases.” This is great baseball and great family entertainment that is truly affordable; in fact, all home games are absolutely free! Parking is free, admission is free and the concessions, often referred to as “quite possibly America’s finest ballpark food,” are extremely reasonable.
