Miami Marlins players show their love for the city (includes video story)

Baseball, hot dogs and croquettes are three things that families look forward to when visiting the Marlins. 

Marlins players not only love their sport but also Miami, as they spoke about their sports’ identity in the Miami culture. 

“For me to put on a Marlins jersey is everything for me,” said first-base Coach Jon Jay. “I love Miami, everyone knows that.”

The season will continue from August to October, and fans can support their team at LoanDepot Park with tickets as low as five dollars.
