DUNEDIN - It’s not about football. Not really, at least.

For new Dunedin Junior Falcons Coach Michael Gardner, youth football is about the training that applies off the field too.

“A lot of what we’re doing is not just teaching football, but life lessons as well,” Gardner said. “It’s the discipline, the camaraderie.”

August welcomes Gardner’s first season as head coach of the Dunedin football teams, but he’s been around youth football long enough to know the drill; he and his son left the East Lake league after a few years once they saw Dunedin make a change.

DUNEDIN - A ticket for a Florida State League game was redeemed at the Florida Auto Exchange Stadium box office July 19, marking the first time in baseball that a fan has made use of the universal rain check policy.

The Dunedin Blue Jays created the policy at the beginning of the 2014 season, and they are the first and only team in Minor League Baseball to offer the rainout program.

The use of the ticket stems from the rainout July 6 of the Lakeland Flying Tigers versus the Daytona Cubs in Lakeland.

DUNEDIN - City officials continue to talk to the Toronto Blue Jays about the team’s needs for spring training, including the possibility of building a new stadium on 22 acres off Patricia Avenue.

The Jays’ contract with Dunedin expires Dec. 30, 2017, and city officials hope to get a commitment from the Jays for at least another 20 years.

In a memo City Parks and Recreation Director Vince Gizzi said city officials and Jays executives discussed expanding training facilities at a meeting March 24. After further discussion a suggestion came up that 375 Patricia Avenue, known as the former Neilson property, would make a better site to meet the needs of the Blue Jays.
