Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"My junior year (at Coral Gables Senior High School) I didn't even receive one card from a college, and then FIU opened its doors. FIU played a big role in my development, not only as an athlete but as a student and I really appreciate what Coach Price did. He's a good person. I think he likes his kids, I think he cares about his kids and, especially when you've gone through the minor league system and experienced the feeling of being nothing more than a number, you better appreciate the people who took the time to get the most out of your talent." - Mike Lowell

The F.I.U. baseball program started in 1973, Rusty McNealy was the first former Golden Panther player to make it to the Major League level. Former Major League infielder Mike de la Hoz made his Major League debut on July 22, 1960 and attended F.I.U. He earned a Bachelor in Business (2002) & Finance (2002), but not until he left the playing field.

On February 26, 2002, a sold-out crowd of 2,473 at University Park, the largest home crowd ever in the program's twenty-nine year history, saw F.I.U. defeat defending national champion University of Miami , 7-1.
