Mighty Mussels hosting ‘Faith & Family Night’ on June 3

Sidewalk ProphetsThe Fort Myers Mighty Mussels are continuing the franchise’s popular Faith & Family Night with a June 3 celebration that features a postgame concert from Sidewalk Prophets.

The annual event combines a trio of pastimes – baseball, faith and family – at Hammond Stadium in what has become a ballpark tradition for Southwest Florida families of all faiths.

Sidewalk Prophets is a Nashville-based contemporary Christian band that has seen four of its albums rise to the Top 10 of Billboard magazine’s Top Christian Albums. One of the band’s earlier songs, “You Love Me Anyway,” peaked at No. 1 on the Christian singles chart.

“We have worked hard to create an environment of ‘affordable family fun’ at Hammond Stadium, and nothing brings the family together quite like baseball, music, food and faith,” said Mighty Mussels President Chris Peters.

“It’s going to be an awesome night of faith, family and fun,” added Dave Frey, lead singer of Sidewalk Prophets.

Faith & Family Night highlights a six-game homestand against the St. Lucie Mets that runs May 30 to June 4 at Hammond Stadium in Fort Myers. The homestand also features Mussel Man’s School’s Out Celebration on June 2, when all students 16 and under can get free tickets to the game as well as passes to visit SunSplash Family Waterpark.
