A little bit of history to note: With a 7-5 victory on Wednesday night at St. Lucie, the Jupiter Hammerheads (High Class A; Florida State League) notched the 1,000th win in franchise history.
The Hammerheads were scheduled to play a pair of 7-inning games on Wednesday to make up for a rain out the previous night. However, game one was forced to go into extra innings, and the second was again postponed when inclement weather returned to the area. Brian McConkey went a perfect 3-for-3 with a walk, a run scored and two RBI in Jupiter’s historic win.
The Hammerheads began play in 1998 as an affiliate of the Montreal Expos. In 2002 they became the affiliate of the then-Florida Marlins. The 2012 season marks their 11th year as the Marlins’ farm club and their 15th season playing at Roger Dean Stadium. With their 1,000 win, Jupiter’s overall franchise record stands at 1,000-1,055.
