Fireflies Close Out Their First Season

Fireflies' First Season Comes to an End

Columbia, SC (WLTX)- The Fireflies ended their season with a 14-2 loss against the Charleston Riverdogs, but with a new fan base looking forward to the next season. 

The team's president John Katz said the season has been about more than just the game itself. 

"To me, this venue is about bringing generations of families together," Katz said. "Baseball is obviously a huge part of what we do.. but really there's something here for everyone."

Fans said the last game was a bittersweet end to a summer filled with games again. 

"It really gives us something to do midweek for the kids and on the weekendds instead of running down the road to the beach." Season ticket holder, Lisa Sharrard said. "It's just a lot of fun."

In the off season, the park will still be open to the public from dawn to dusk.

It functions just like any other public park, where you can walk around, picnic and exercise. 

Some statistics on this season (not including the final game): 

- There have been approximately 52,000 hot dogs sold at Spirit Communications Park.
- 258,114 fans have showed up to Spirit Communications Park this season
- Columbia has scored 602 Runs scored this season (279 at SCP)
- 25 fireworks shows at SCP
