Report: Marlins to host 'Legends of Wrestling Night'
The Miami Marlins will do just about anything to get fans to the stadium. Other than trying to win, of course.
The Miami Marlins will do just about anything to get fans to the ballpark -- that is, other than putting a winning team on the field.
The latest, according to Maury Brown, is a "Legends of Wrestling Night" on Aug. 24, when the Marlins host the Rockies.
Brown reports that Bill Goldberg will throw out the ceremonial first pitch and the following wrestling legends will be part of the event: Bret "The Hitman" Hart, Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart, Greg "The Hammer" Valentine, Jimmy "Mouth of the South" Hart, Koko B. Ware, Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake, Bushwhacker Luke and more (full list on bizofbaseball.com).
So, South Florida fans of The Hart Foundation should be excited.
The Marlins average 17,416 fans per game, ranking last in the majors in attendance despite playing in the newest stadium in Major League Baseball. It was built using hundreds of millions of dollars of public funding -- tax dollars used to purchase bonds -- though, so at least owner Jeffrey Loria isn't hurting, right?
