Miami’s own Gloria Estefan recorded the song to benefit the Florida Marlins Foundation. Listen for yourself.

“Although the world would say they’d never have their day, and keep on dissing...we wouldn’t listen.”

The fifth line in the song reminds us of today’s Fish. No, we’re not saying they’re going to win the World Series this year, but the Marlins have been receiving their fair share of criticism over the handling of the rebuild and trades, especially over the last year or so.

We here at Fish Stripes see this rebuild as a much-needed breath of fresh air. We are hopeful that soon, “The Marlins will deserve all the respect they’ve earned.”

Here’s a link to the song written and performed by Gloria Estefan after the Marlins won the 1997 World Series. Enjoy.
