The Brevard County Manatees were a minor league baseball team of the Class A-Advanced Florida State League from 1994 to 2016. They were based in Viera, Florida, and played their home games at Space Coast Stadium; built in 1994, the park held 5,346 people and was also the Spring training home of Major League Baseball's Washington Nationals. The team left Brevard County after the 2016 season for Kissimmee, Florida, to be known as the Florida Fire Frogs.

Their mascot was Manny Manatee. During the time that the team was affiliated with the Florida Marlins, the mascot was named Hugh.

Team history

In 1994, the Manatees made it to the Florida State League championship series, but lost in the finals to the Tampa Yankees. They made a second championship series appearance in 2001. However, due to the September 11 attacks, the championship series was canceled and the Manatees and Yankees were declared co-champions. In 2007, the Manatees won the title in their division, but lost in the league finals to the Clearwater Threshers in four games.

On August 12, 2009, the Manatees recorded the 1,000th win in franchise history with an 8–2 win over the Dunedin Blue Jays.

After the 2016 season, the team relocated to Kissimmee, Florida, and Osceola County Stadium. [7] The name of the team changed to Florida Fire Frogs [8] and affiliation switched from the Brewers to the Atlanta Braves.


In April 2007, on "World Record First Pitch Attempt Day" the stadium was opened at 6:00 a.m. for the 7:00 p.m. game to allow each fan to throw a ceremonial first pitch. They were still short of the world record by several hundred pitches.
