The Florida Shine Awards Ceremony represents a historic moment for the FMBA, as it brings together the baseball community to recognize and honor individuals who have significantly contributed to the sport while championing diversity and inclusivity. This groundbreaking event marks the first of its kind in Palm Beach County, symbolizing a pivotal step toward highlighting those working to make baseball more inclusive.
The inaugural Florida Shine Classic, held in May 2023 in partnership with The Palm Beach County Sports Commission, paved the way for the Florida Shine Awards Ceremony. The Florida Shine Classic served as a showcase event at the Ballpark of the Palm Beaches, featuring over 50 talented high school baseball players from minority backgrounds. This platform provided them with a unique opportunity to showcase their skills to college recruiters, professional scouts, and fans.
The February 4, 2024 celebration promises an evening of recognition, reflection, and camaraderie as the baseball community unites to honor those who have made significant contributions to the sport.
