Baseball season is here, and since it’s my favorite sport Sebastien Cibois Jersey , I wanted to talk about the Florida Marlins. Back in 1990, Major League Baseball (MLB) announced that they wanted to add two new
expansion teams in the National League. The idea was to put one of these two
expansion teams in the state of Florida. Orlando, Tampa Bay (who later got a
team of their own), and Miami all were in a bidding war. Wayne
Huizenga Jean-Christophe Bahebeck Jersey , a local businessman from Miami, won the rights to the team and based that team in Miami. After handing over $95 million dollars
for the ball club, Huizenga became the new owner of the Florida Marlins – it was
In 1993, Major League Baseball welcomed the Florida Marlins to their family. In 1997 Kevin Rimane Jersey , the Florida Marlins broke a then record becoming the fastest expansion team to win a championship – they won the wild card spot
to accomplish this feat. The Wild Card position was once again the way they got
into the 2003 World Series – which they won again – and in the process became
the first team to be two time champions in any of the four major sports after
winning a wild card spot.
It hasn’t always been a bed of roses for the team from South Florida. The Marlins inaugural season ranks amongst their worst on record. That first season,
the Marlins winning percentage was a meager .395 – among the worst in the Major
Leagues, but just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse, their sophomore
winning percentage was worse – a .333. Of course things did pick up in the
winning column – as both their championship runs had percentages just above .500
with their 1997 season being their best Stanley N'Soki Jersey , a .568 winning percentage.
Fan attendance has always been a problem for the Florida Marlins. Ranking among the lowest in attendance since 1998, the team from South Florida has risen
to the top. A second MLB title wasn’t enough to put fans in the seats, as in
2003 the Marlins was second worse in getting people in the door. The Marlins
will have a new home in 2012, a move that the owners hope will see more people
in the seats.
Some well-known players have emerged from the Marlins system. The voting for the Cy Young award Moussa Diaby Jersey , given to the league’s best pitcher was a tight battle in 1996, as a young Marlin, Kevin Brown finished second in the voting.
Going through the Marlins farm system, Miguel Cabrera got sharpened his hitting
prowess and has become one of the game’s best. He hit 138 home runs in five
seasons with the ‘Fish’.
As earlier stated Colin Dagba Jersey , the Marlins will be moving to a new location in 2012. Since 1993, the Marlins have shared the same playing field as the NLF’s
Miami Dolphins. In their 19th year in the league, the Marlins will be moving to
a spot where the legendary Orange Bowl used to stand. A retractable roof will be
awaiting the estimated 37,000 fans that will be able to view – the new stadium
will be the sixth in MLB to have such a roof. The Marlins will not only have a
new home Antoine Bernede Jersey , but will have a new name. As part of the relocation agreement, the Miami-Dade commissioner’s office will change the name
from the Florida Marlins to the Miami Marlins.
Whether they are the Florida or Miami Marlins, it will be great to see another World Championship come to South Florida.
