Miami Marlins to host open workout; announce #RewriteTheFuture promotions
The Miami Marlins will be giving their fans a chance to see the team before Opening Day. The Marlins will be holding an open work out, that is open to the public on Sunday from 2-4 PM.
This will be an opportunity for the fans to see slugger Giancarlo Stanton take batting practice. This will be the first time the Marlins have held this type of event since the eve of Opening Day in 2012. Opening Day is Monday, April 6 and the Marlins expect a sellout.
The Marlins also announced a few unique promotions yesterday. The first event they announced was a Back to the Future Night. If you have never seen the movie Back to the Future II, Marty Mcfly goes to Wrigley Field in Chicago to see who has won the 2015 World Series and finds out that Chicago has beat “Miami” in a series sweep.

This promotion will be season-long but the Marlins hope that the result is a bit different than what the classic movie forecasted. The promotion will have many giveaways such as a “Miami Alligators” ALCS t-shirt and a Billy the Marlin McFly bobblehead. On the night of September 25th the Marlins encourage fans to wear their spiffiest Nike Power Laces.
The Marlins have also announced a “Zombie Night,” which will be based off the hit TV show “The Walking Dead.” Fans will have the chance to meet and greet with “T-Dog,” a character from the show. The first 5,000 fans will receive a Zombie Night poster.
