We already acknowledged the special individuals on and off the field who have been most indispensable for the Marlins franchise. However, the inaugural Fish Stripes Marlins Hall of Fame class would not be complete without these signature moments. You will recognize some of them from the earlier HOF videos, but in many cases, they feature subjects whose careers fall short of conventional Hall of Fame consideration. That doesn’t mean they should be forgotten!

The first batch contains 27 moments, signifying the 27 seasons that have been played in Fish history. We shall call them Splashes. Every year moving forward, we’ll be adding more.

In chronological order:

  • Giancarlo Stanton’s walk-off grand slam on Mother’s Day (May 13, 2012)
  • Stanton home run damages new Marlins Park scoreboard (May 21, 2012)
  • Adam Greenberg returns to majors for first official at-bat (October 2, 2012)
  • José Fernández reunites with Cuban grandmother (June 29, 2013)
  • Fernández catches Troy Tulowitzki liner and taunts him (August 24, 2013)
  • Benches clear after Fernández’s first career home run (September 11, 2013)
  • Henderson Alvarez earns no-hitter on walk-off wild pitch (September 29, 2013)
  • Young dancing Marlins fan Jonathan Esponda goes viral (June 23, 2014)
  • Ichiro Suzuki’s 3,000th career MLB hit (August 9, 2016)
  • Dee Gordon’s leadoff home run following José Fernández’s death (September 26, 2016)
  • Justin Bour eats doughnut during Home Run Derby round (July 10, 2017)
