SIMMIAMI, FLORIDA -- The sun is shining, the grass is green, and The Team Formerly Known as Sharks are getting prepared for the franchise's first complete season. Formed just last September, The Team Formerly Known as Sharks have assembled an exciting roster and will compete for the 2035 Park Championship.

"We have a great group of players, and great leadership," said owner Ari. "I'm excited for this iteration of Florida baseball."

The Team Formerly Known as Sharks played exhibition ball last September through the winter and is now in Spring Training for the 2035 season. The team finished 23-18 in September play, and reached the fourth round of the 2034 Winter Ball Park Playoffs exhibition tournament.

“We knew what our goal was last year,” said team manager Chip DeWitt. “That was, first and foremost, to get everyone playing time. But to look at our record, above .500 against great competition, you have to be encouraged with those results. That’s the type of season we expect going forward.”

Starting pitcher Edward Murrin may be the most exciting player in the Sharks organization, and ranks as one of the top prospects in the nation. The 19-year old finished his first season with a 0.67 ERA. “And he got even better this offseason,” DeWitt said, adding that Murrin will be the team ace this season.

“I’m just looking forward to a great season of ball, and excited to get this season going,” Murrin said. “We’ve got a great group of guys in the dugout, so we’re just focusing on one game at a time.”

This week, the Sharks organization breaks ground on Edward Poole Memorial Ballpark, which will host professional baseball in the near future. The stadium will be named after Edward Poole, former ace of the Florida Sharks organization and an iconic figure in Florida baseball. The Sharks organization is inspired by the early 20th century Florida Sharks, 1919 Independent League Champions. The Poole family was instrumental in bringing organized baseball back to Florida after the floods.

“It is both an honor and a privilege to have this stadium named after such an inspirational figure,” said general manager Jennifer Poole. “I cannot wait for the return of professional baseball to Simmiami.”
