Florida Marlins Delay Game Until Their Fan Shows Up

August 13, 2010 | ISSUE 46•32

MIAMI—The Florida Marlins delayed the start of their game against the St. Louis Cardinals last Sunday when Steve, their fan, failed to show up at Sun Life Stadium by the scheduled 1 p.m. start time.

"That's strange," Marlins manager Edwin Rodriguez said while squinting up at their sole fan's unoccupied bleacher seat. "It's not like him to be late, especially on a Sunday. And this is his last chance to see us before we go on the road for 10 days."

"Well, we can't really start without him," added Rodriguez, who had earlier called Steve's cell phone and house, but received no answer. "How would that look?"

The third-place Marlins, who have struggled with attendance for some time, have come to count on Steve to lovingly call out players' names, start "Let's go, Marlins" chants, and boo the visiting team. In addition, the team was reportedly excited to see what Steve would write on a sign to make fun of Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols.

Steve is the only person to attend a Marlins baseball game in eight years.

"I seriously wonder where he could be," said Marlins second baseman Dan Uggla, who suggested the team warm up a little longer to give their fan extra time to show up. "I know his daughter has a dentist appointment, but I'm pretty sure that's next Sunday. Shoot, we'll have to push the game back to 3."

As the delay grew to an hour, dugout sources expressed increasing concern. Players discarded the possibility of Steve being stuck in traffic, as the streets around the ballpark are all but deserted on game days. They also said it was unlikely Steve had been called into the auto parts store where he works, because it is closed on Sundays unless they are doing inventory. Players noted that inventory, however, is always at the end of the month. A check of Steve's Facebook page revealed no family birthdays.

Marlins executives emphasized that in the rare cases when Steve has been delayed he has always been careful to call or at least send an e-mail to Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria.

"But today, nothing," said Marlins president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest. "It's weird. He seemed pretty happy at the last game, when we snapped a losing streak by beating the Cardinals, so you'd think he'd be extra excited."

"Man, I hope nothing's wrong with Lisa," Beinfest added.

Despite Steve's tardiness, the Marlins were not especially concerned that their loyal fan would stop coming to games altogether.

"Steve's not like Lloyd or Fowler was," Marlins third baseman Wes Helms told reporters. "He knows all the names of the pitchers, he knows all about the '97 World Series team, all that stuff that a lot of the guys on the team don't even know. Unless something's wrong, he'll be here. I mean, he has to come. He knows full well that today's promotion is Give Steve a Bat Day."

"I really hope he makes it, because sometimes to cheer myself up I look over and try to pick his face out from all the empty seats," pitcher Will Ohman said. "Guys like Steve are the reason I play my butt off. Although I guess in this case it's more just Steve and not so much guys like him."

Meanwhile, St. Louis Cardinals players and coaches were sympathetic to the Marlins' situation, agreeing to take some extra batting practice. However, manager Tony LaRussa said that because the team's plane was scheduled to leave at 7, they could only wait for Steve for another hour, tops.

"Oh, I think that's him pulling into the parking lot," catcher Ronny Paulino said. "Nah, false alarm. Should have know that wasn't him. Steve doesn't drive an SUV

This is a big series IMHO. The Rangers have to show they are for real and can play with the Big Boys at this time of the year, play through the heat. I really don't know if they will get over the himp or not. Time to find out.

And ratboy, do you know the difference between a yankee and a damn yankee?

A yankee goes back home.

Even more good news for the Phils. That bastard has tortured me for what seems like an eternity.


It's a way of life for old Phillies fans to be tortured. Dad and I had tickets to the 1964 World Series opener the Phils were supposed to be in. Watching that lead dissipate was unreal. As a result, their recent success is really great to see.

Boy Chitown -- it's Cubstown alright -- miles out of contention & they still outdraw the ChiSox, who are contending -- a near-sellout at Wrigley last night (36K), while the ChiSox averaged 30G or so over the weekend at Comiskey -- well Morneau or no Morneau it's 2 out of 3 at least for TC this week -- they're top dog in MN whereas the ChiSox are second-raters in their 'hood -- big difference (the crowd)

no crowds in Atlanta & Tampa Bay last night, two contenders, both playing contending teams -- & only 20G in Atl, & 18G in TB -- surprising -- the last year of a coaching legend, Bobby Cox, & everything -- maybe the game is starting to price itself out in these areas -- suppose it could've been the heat too...go home Stephen

go Sawx -- "we'll catch up, it all depends on the hurling"

Ellsbury "probably" out for the year -- without him and Youk, things do not get any easier -- I still say we'll catch up though -- the three best teams will be battling for two spots, the div. title & wild card, right to the very end

RIP, Bobby Thomson

Lots to like about tonight's game at Fenway, but the play of the game goes to visitor Torii Hunter who went up over the bullpen wall to bring back an HR off the bat of Adrian Beltre...they gave the stat that he has 40 HR takeaways in his career. First, I had no idea that was actually tracked. Second, dude has skills.

I hear ya bro -- all the first-placers except the Rangiz are really hitting it right now -- Twins 20 games over .500, playing good (get well soon JMorn) -- no time to relax though, ChiSox have easy schedule (KC then Balt.) coming up, while it's Twins-Rangers Monday

the Sox have to get to 20 games over too, & It's Gotta Happen this weekend -- we'll need to be 25 games over to get back into it -- it's stiff comp in that AL East -- those three will be among the top 4-5 overall MLB finishers at the end of the season -- one of the best teams in baseball won't be in the playoffs, so all the Sox can do is run the table as best they can & win the remaining head to head series -- & on & on -- it should be TB IMO, their crowd doesn't care (what there is of it) -- Sawx & Yankees, the way it should be

-- what about da Braves & Padres -- Atl stocking up to try to win one for retiring skipper Bobby Cox, w/Philly right on their heels -- SD, wailin' despite having the second-lowest payroll in baseball -- the Red Stockings, displacing St.L as top dog there
baseball is wonderful -- love following it all -- Stan Musial was on the cover of SI two weeks ago, maybe it's the SI Curse on the Cahds...no mattah -- keep winnin Sox
(Am like this in person too btw -- a blabbermouth)
well at least you guys have the playoffs all but secured -- you're sure to pick it back up this weekend against the weakling (but improved) Orioles -- awesome lineup w/Josh Hamilton, Vlady etc.

Except Vlady isn't hitting and hasn't for 6 weeks, Cruz and Kinsler on the DL. Pitching hasn't been great, bullpen sucks right now, more errors on defense....looks like the Rangers of yesteryear right now. Hope they can turn it around.
