The Fort Myers Miracle are the Minnesota Twins affiliate in the Florida State League. The Miracle franchise originated in 1926, as the Ft. Myers Palms, before becoming the Miami Hustlers one year later. In 1962, the franchise became the Miami Marlins, named after the old AAA team of the same name. The club was known as the Miami Orioles from 1971-1981, before reverting to the Marlins name again in 1982. The Marlins became the Miami Miracle in 1989, before moving to Ft. Myers in 1992.

The 1992 co-op team had 25 players supplied by the Minnesota Twins, 7 from the Texas Rangers, 5 from the Cleveland Indians, and 1 each from the Florida Marlins and Kansas City Royals.

In December, 2019 the team announced it would be re-christened as the Fort Myers Mighty Mussels [1].
