Tonight the Marlins play their home opener against the Braves and any music heard at Marlins Park in Miami will be recorded because the team hasn’t hired an organist.
Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald writes:
There will be no organist, at least initially. The Marlins held tryouts for an organist but couldn’t find one to fit the bill. Another audition will be scheduled.
Miami actually started the organist tryouts way back in February. So either the Marlins have some incredibly high standards or no one decent wants the job. Obviously this isn’t exactly earth-shattering news or anything, but when combined with everything else the Marlins have done recently it certainly fits the overall state of the franchise.
