PANAMA CITY, Fla- The Bay County Brewers adult baseball team is giving former high school, college, and minor league players a chance to continue to play the game they love.

Here's the teams official statement:
"THE BAY COUNTY BREWERS IS AN ADULT BASEBALL TEAM, WHICH ORIGINATED IN PANAMA CITY, FLORIDA DURING THE SUMMER OF 2001. IT IS PRIMARILY DESIGNED TO ACCOMMODATE THE TALENTS OF LOCAL PLAYERS, OVER THE AGE OF EIGHTEEN, WHO OTHERWISE WOULD NOT HAVE THE CHANCE TO PLAY BASEBALL IN OUR AREA. AS A TEAM, WE ARE TRYING TO RAISE MONEY FOR OUR TEAM EXPENSES, WHICH INCLUDE: LEAGUE FEES, FIELD USAGE, TOURNAMENT FEES, EQUIPMENT, AND OTHER COSTS.
EACH YEAR HAS BEEN A GROWING EXPERIENCE FOR THE BAY COUNTY BREWERS AS AN ORGANIZATION. BEING THE ONLY ADULT BASEBALL TEAM IN THE AREA, IT HAS BEEN DIFFICULT TO REACH THE PUBLIC ABOUT WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO. THE BREWERS’ MAIN FOCUSES ARE TO GIVE PLAYERS A CHANCE TO GET BACK TO THEIR YOUTH WITH THE GAME OF BASEBALL AND CONTINUE TO PUSH GROWTH IN THE BAY COUNTY AREA, TO ONE DAY EVOLVE INTO A SUCCESSFUL LEAGUE IN BAY COUNTY!
FOR 2011, WE HAVE ACCEPTED TO PLAY IN THE BIG BEND SUMMER LEAGUE (BBSL) AGAIN. THE BBSL ACCOMMODATES ADULT AND COLLEGE LEVEL TEAMS FROM AROUND THE AREA. GAMES ARE TO BE PLAYED BOTH IN AND OUT OF TOWN THROUGHOUT THE REGION. THE BBSL WILL ENABLE OUR TEAM TO GAIN RECOGNITION IN NEIGHBORING CITIES, AS WELL AS GIVE OUR SPONSORS THE CHANCE TO ADVERTISE (THROUGH OUR TEAM) IN MULTIPLE DISTRICTS.
