Being a Miami Marlins fan, seeing your team play in a stadium that was filled to the roof was such a pleasure. One would even forget to be upset at people who happened to be sitting down in your seats (Section 225, Row 2) all in hopes of cheering on Stanton and the team, together. However, with the Marlins leading the Yankees 8-0 in the first inning — yes I did say the first inning — most of these fans appeared to be part of a great Houdini disappearing act.
The stadium wasn’t filled with Marlins fans, but the Yankee fans from five minutes ago. All because they are the Yankees they gain the support Miami lacks. With each strike, a row emptied out. All that remained were peanut shells and years of dedication from the time of the Florida Marlins.
