Fort Myers Royals

The Fort Myers Royals were a minor league affiliate of the Kansas City Royals. In 1978 the Royals were brought to Fort Myers, Florida by the Kansas City franchise. This was because Fort Myers served as the spring training home of the Kansas City Royals. The Royals were a Single A Florida State League franchise. The team played at Terry Park Ballfield from 1978 until 1987. In 1985 the Royals won the Florida League Championship. Kevin Seitzer and Bret Saberhagen were members of that Fort Myers Royals team. The team was disbanded in 1988 when the Major League Baseball franchise left Fort Myers for Haines City, Florida and began play at Baseball City Stadium.
