The Miami Marlins’normal fans-to-superfans ratio has to be the lowest in the game, right? From the Miami Herald:
Inside a nearly empty Marlins Ballpark, an endangered species stirs to life.
They roam Marlins Park clad in bright orange jerseys, caps, even team pins and earrings. They wave flags, have baseball mitts at the ready, and come with offerings of cupcakes.
These are the fans who come out night after night to cheer on a team in a new home that most have abandoned after only a year.
And they do it for one reason: Loyalty.
It’s a profile of some Marlins fanatics. Who, in addition to loyalty, have to be getting some hipster I-was-into-them-before-they-were-big jollies out of this too, right?
