Thousands of fans from all over South Florida lined up in excitement to attend the highly anticipated annual Miami Marlins Fanfest.

“Really excited for Fanfest, been looking forward to this for over a month,” said Ryan Schlesinger.

Marlins enthusiasts got to enjoy one-on-one experiences with the players and coaches, and even take some swings in the live batting cages. 

The next time fans get to see their players in action will be during the World Baseball Classic, which starts March 11 at LoanDepot Park.
