Six wins since the last FishStripes post is a good thing—except that was two weeks ago. While the Marlins are battling to get out of the cellar in the NL East, there were some fireworks on the field while others did other jobs off the field, including taking a tour of Coors Field.
Haha currently watchin a dude and his little boy go up and down the escalator, they are on their 4th time, oh to be 3 again. Simple joy.— Bryan Petersen (@Peteypipes) August 18, 2012
There's little question to what the Play of the Week is.
That was Stanton's 23rd HR of the season, and one of the longest in all of baseball in 2012.
Before the team started their West Coast swing out in Colorado, the state came to them.
Well, sort of.
Pro snowboarder Jack Mitrani left the snowy mountains of Colorado to the warm beaches of Miami to take in a Marlins game, and he enjoys himself at Marlins Park.
Meanwhile, a big baseball fan who lives in Colorado met John Buck on a Hawaiian vacation, and the story just opened up from there.
Watch the video to see how it unfolds.
West Coast food is different than what we eat here in Miami. Giancarlo can't wait to get his hands on that.
I've gone 6 months without In n out burger. But that ends tonight, I'm about to go INNN, n out!!— Giancarlo Stanton (@Giancarlo818) August 20, 2012
Back in Miami while the guys are on the road, Billy the Marlin is keeping busy.
Lil' Jose and his new friend Lil' Giancarlo went with the Marlins and took a trip to Colorado.
Here's another pic from the tour:
The entire crew continue their West Coast swing with series against Arizona and Los Angeles, where Hanley Ramirez will reunite with his old club. Make sure to stay up this week to catch the Fish.
