Soto’s Optical, Kim & Ron Soto

Ron Soto is a very groovy guy, if you don’t mind my using the word “groovy”.  First of all, before we go any further, Ron and Kim Soto own and operate Soto’s Optical Boutique, at 1383 Main Street in Sarasota.  They sell fashion eyewear, glasses, and accessories.  The first time I visited their store, just to check things out, I was salivating.  There’s top-of-the-line eyewear displayed so fashionably, with pendant lights that look like something cool from the future.

History of Minor League Baseball In Sarasota / Bradenton

The Florida State League is a Class A minor baseball league operating in the state of Florida.  It is one of three leagues currently operating in Class A Advanced, the third highest of six classifications of minor leagues.  Each team in the league is affiliated with a Major League Baseball team, and most play in the affiliate’s Spring Training Facility.

Now for some history: The league was founded in 1919, and has continued almost entirely uninterrupted to the present day.  Most players in the Florida State League do not reach this level until their third or fourth year of professional playing.  The League originated in 1919 with teams in Bartow, Bradenton, Orlando, Sanford and Tampa.  The League closed down in 1928 and resumed playing in 1936, then they continued playing uninterrupted, except for the World War II years, from 1942-1945.
