Photo Story: Marlins vs Rangers June 16

By Ivan Berliant

After another great day at the ballpark…

This is a Second Half Push photo account of the game. Check out some of the things we saw, and that you could’ve seen. Including Michael Young hitting his 1748th hit with the Rangers! Witnessing History over here.

Disclaimer: If people look a little overly sweaty (cough cough me), it was HOT last night!

Michael Young after he got his 1748th hit for the Rangers, most all-time. Here’s a Florida Marlin name drop, he passed Ivan “Pudge” Rodriguez.
Empty Marlins Stadium
Even $7.90 tickets and exciting interleague play couldn’t fill up Sun Life Stadium, there were no more than a guesstimated six or seven thousand. Honestly, this team could use some support. Maybe they’ll come out after tonight’s NBA Finals game 7. Yea that’s it, they’re waiting for after game 7…
Hanley Ramirez popping out
Hanley Ramirez, the heart of South Florida, well maybe other than Dwayne Wade. Not a great night at the plate and this photo kind of sums it up. He did hit a blast to left center (which I called by the way, and I have witnesses) but was robbed at the track. That would have been two in two days.
Ivan and the infamous beer guy
Me (Ivan from Second Half Push) with probably the second most famous guy at the park. If you’re a local you know this guy… “GET YOUR ICE COLD BEER,HEREEE”
Blake and Ivan with a mermaid
We got the whole experience last night, Baseball, Billy and the cheerleaders. Are the Marlins the only Major League Baseball team with cheerleaders?
Blake and Billy the Marlin
Soon after sitting down, the Marlins’ mascot, Billy the Marlin, came right to our section. We had to get a picture. He might have Blake in a strangle hold, but the only thing that’s choking is the Marlins’ bullpen. Or, he might have Blake in a stranglehold, but the Mets have a stranglehold on the Marlins atop the NL East. Sorry I’ll stop, I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity for some cleverness.
Pre-game tailgating with some Marlins fans/friends
Blake Chadwick of Second Half Push tailgating with some Marlins fans. Well they’re actually friends, one of the many ways to intrude on the enemy’s territory. Take notes Jets and Mets fans.
