It is the eternal youth of the game, freshly chalked lines and newly mowed grass, our national pastime and Roy Hobbs Baseball – summer never ages.
And neither do the boys and girls of summer, gathering as they have each fall for nearly three decades in Fort Myers to play the Roy Hobbs Baseball World Series – the 2017 World Series set for October 21 through November 11.
Roy Hobbs Baseball, named for the main character in Bernard Malamud’s classic existential novel, The Natural, brings together baseball veterans ages 18 to over 70 to play the game they love most. (Malamud’s novel was also made into 1984 movie staring Robert Redford.)
Sun Palace Vacations opens its beautiful beach homes to players and crews each year and 2017 will see baseball and the beach offer up a fall classic that’s hard to beat. As we do each year, Roy Hobbs players, coaches and families receive 5 percent discount on home rentals.
But you don’t have to be a baseball player – or, even, an existentialist – to enjoy our fabulous beach vacation homes! Check our available homes for the week you want to visit and join us for vacation! Order our free Vacation Guide to learn more about all the activities in Southwest Florida!

“Wonderboy flashed in the sun. It caught the sphere where it was biggest. A noise like a twenty-one gun salute cracked the sky. There was a straining, ripping sound and a few drops of rain spattered to the ground. The ball screamed toward the pitcher and seemed suddenly to dive down at his feet. He grabbed it to throw to first and realized to his horror that he held only the cover. The rest of it, unraveling cotton thread as it rode, was headed into the outfield.” – Bernard Malamud, The Natural.
Roy Hobbs Baseball is an amateur series for adults with teams all across the United States, Canada, Caribbean, and even Europe. Comprised of more than 600 teams and over 7,500 players, this unique series celebrates the spirit of sport and the love of the game. Since its founding in 1993, the Roy Hobbs Baseball World Series has exemplified sport in its purest form and brought together men and women to play, simply play, the game they love.
Baseball and Fort Myers go hand in glove. As the spring training home to both the Boston Red Sox and the Minnesota Twins, baseball is as much a part of the Fort Myers scene as, well, the beach!
