The St. Lucie Legends were one of the eight original franchises that began play in the Senior Professional Baseball Association in 1989. In the league's inaugural season, the team struggled and did not make the playoffs. The club's offense was led by Juan Beniquez's .359 batting average and George Foster's 11 home runs. After their first season, the St. Lucie Legends ceased operations.
