Editor’s Note: We at Marlin Maniac wish the best for all affected by the snowstorm. Please stay safe.
You may have heard by now that the Northeastern United States is currently being pummeled by snow. Winter Storm Juno has brought upon us what the media have dubbed “Snowmageddon.” On top of people losing electricity and being snowed in their homes, the storm has affected the sports world as well; the NBA’s New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets had their home games cancelled yesterday, and more postponements could be on the horizon.
Did you know that twice in franchise history, the Miami Marlins have had games postponed due to snow? Both occurrences happened within the last five years, with the most recent coming in 2013 at Minnesota’s Target Field (go figure.) Oddly, however, the Marlins have never had a home game cancelled because of snow; they’ve just been lucky, I guess.
Here’s a look at the games the Marlins have had impacted by that foreign stuff that falls from the sky everywhere but Florida.
