After years of discussion and brainstorming, Greg created a springtime event to complement to Bob Wagner's Wooden Bat Classic held every January in Fort Myers. The Southwest Florida Spring Fling began in 2012 and is designed to offer players additional spring training to tune up for their spring or summer leagues back home. Players will experience full pro-ballplayer amenities including a locker, meals, access to an athletic trainer, massage therapist and much more. It is an event everyone should experience.

Greg Wagner

Greg Wagner took over the Wooden Bat Classic tournament in the fall of 2001 when his father, Bob, the originator of the tournament, lost his battle with esophogeal cancer. Since that time, Greg has seen Bob Wagner's Wooden Bat Classic grow into an annual successful event, taking place at historic Terry Park in Fort Myers each January.
