Marlins Home Season Opener Mar 31

March 24th, 2008  |  by  |  Published in FunBlog

The Florida Marlins will host the New York Mets on Monday March 31 at 4:10pm at Dolphin Stadium for their 2008 season opener.

It looks like left-hander Mark Hendrickson will pitch for the Marlins against against Johan Santana. Hendrickson signed with the team during the offseason for $1.5 million.

One interesting thing about Hendrickson: He’s played against Michael Jordan. No, not when Jordan tried to play baseball. Hendrickson is 6’9″ and used to play pro basketball in the NBA.

The Marlin’s starter has a 1.69 ERA during spring training with nine strikeouts in 16 innings of play; one of the better performances of the spring season.

Go support the home team on March 31!
