The Miami Marlins seem to be a team of destiny. Despite the challenges, the injuries, and the young core of their team they have made the MLB playoffs for the first time in a full season since 2003! It really is something to see how much fight this team has and the amount of grit shown on a daily basis.
The Marlins could have given up many different times this season and said let’s get them next year. The team instead came together to do what it took day in and day out, month after month, until arriving here, as one of few teams who made it into the playoffs. What a ride and Marlins faithful who have been watching all season know why this team is special.
We will look at the factors that really made this team come together for this special season. Four of the many different reasons the Marlins are now in the MLB playoffs we will explore but these are only some of the reasons. Even though the reasons might not matter to many who are just happy to be there, hopefully it’s a sign of things to come for the Marlins.
