Miami Marlins Nick Masset makes fans night after stolen ticket mayhem

After purchasing Lexus President Club tickets (Pretty Expensive) at Nat’s ballpark on Stubhub.com yesterday afternoon, Marlins advocate Jason Tate thought he was finally going to live his dream – Purchasing two tickets for his girlfriend and himself to sit in the Luxurious all-inclusive section right behind home plate (its like winning the Lotto). Unfortunately, when Jason got to the park to watch Marlins batting practice, he nor his girlfriend could get through the gate. They were directed to the Ticket service center at Nationals Park, where they were told that the tickets they purchased were put on Stubhub.com with a stolen credit card and the tickets were voided by Nationals officials. The couple was now told, that if they wanted to attend the game they would have to buy tickets at the gate to be admitted (after receiving no info/refund from Stubhub for their Lexus President seat purchase).

After being completely deflated, dreams crushed, the couple was determined to see the game no matter how far away – buying two cheap nosebleed seats in CF. Jason of course, was still determined to get as close to his team as possible and make the best of a bad situation, so the couple left there far out sits to hang around the Marlins bullpen for the evening.

Even with the deflated feeling, the couple fought the frawns of what could have been to get behind their teams, especially Jason, who spent the whole night lounging by the bullpen to motivate his team. Even with Giancarlo Stanton at the plate in the 9th with two outs and a full count, Jason was pumping up Nick Masset saying, “Take it to them! Stanton’s going long here, be ready!”. Words like that were echoed throughout the Marlins Bullpen all night, as Jason stayed determined to make the best of it.

Unfortunately, Stanton struck-out to end the game, giving Masset no chance to shine in the bottom of the ninth, but that didn’t stop Masset from shining in the eyes of a fan. After the last out was called Nick Masset took the stage, ending the couples night on a positive note:

Editor’s note: I want to thank Nick Masset for being a class act and a great representation of what being a baseball player is all about. Of course its about winning and being the best, but as some often forget its about the fans – the one’s who support you no matter how many games you lose or win, no matter how wet, how cold and how hot. Thank you Nick Masset, A.J Ramos, Bryan Morris, Sam Dyson, Mike Dunn, Steve Cishek and the rest of the Marlins bullpen for proving why everyone should be a Marlins fan. I hope one day I can watch you guys mow down the competition from behind home plate!

Marlins Celebrity Lookalikes: 2015 Edition

On Cloud Conine

It’s time to play… Marlins Celebrity Lookalikes!

Last year, we had some fun pairing your favorite Fish players with their celebrity doppelgangers, which you can see here.

Marcell Ozuna and Kanye West… Mike Redmond and Dr. Cox from “Scrubs”… Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Hyde from “That 70’s Show”… the resemblance is uncanny.

With the 2015 season upon us, we’ve put together a whole new batch of Marlins lookalikes, starting with the obvious:

Christian Yelich = SNL cast member, Pete Davidson

Fair skin, big smile, closely resembling a teenager… they’re basically one in the same.

Tom Koehler = actor, Jeff Daniels

IMG_5421With a resemblance like that, Koehler might as well add star of “Dumb and Dumber” to his resume.

David Phelps = actor Jason Statham

Both Phelps and Statham have mastered the “Blue Steel” look. And check out those matching jawlines…

Andrew McKirahan = legendary Beatle, George Harrison

Are we sure George Harrison isn’t still alive in the form of…

30 Teams in 30 Days: Miami Marlins

Parsons Report

30teams30days marlinsBy:  Stephen Parsons

In 2014 the Miami Marlins flirted with a winning season as they finished with a 77-85 record.  They finished well behind the division champion Washington Nationals at 19 games.  However they finished just 2 games back of the 2nd place team Atlanta Braves and New York Mets.  A busy off season in Miami has Marlins fans thinking 2015 could be a year filled with excitement and competitive baseball.

The first order of business that Miami conducted in the off season was locking up slugger Giancarlo Stanton to a long term deal.  The two sides agreed to a massive 13 year deal for $325 million.  The deal is back heavy so the Marlins have some flexibility to get better now and pay more of the contract later on.  Stanton put together the best season of his career.  He hit for a .288 batting average with 37 home runs…
