Hundreds of amateur baseball players — in their 30’s, 40’s 50’s, 60’s and even 70’s — gathered at half a dozen ballparks spread across Ft. Myers and Charlotte County in early November to compete in the 29th annual edition of the Roy Hobbs World Series.

Hello SWFL strolled across a handful of baseball diamonds at JetBlue Park in Ft. Myers to chat with ball players and their managers about a game they’ve loved for most of their lives.

The City of Ft. Myers was thrilled to host hundreds of players at area hotels, restaurants and shops for a week of competition, and the players themselves seemed equally happy to soak up the sun, hospitality and good cheer in Southwest Florida.
