They're doing it again! The Miami Marlins support the Key West Police Athletic League (PAL) proclaiming the second game of their August 13th doubleheader as Key West Night.
At that game, Mayor Teri Johnston will throw out the first pitch. At halftime, a group of Key West kids will join Marlins' mascot Billy on the field during the seventh inning stretch to sing "Take me Out to the Ballgame."
But wait, there's more! Key Westers will get a special ticket price of $25, and $5 of that will be donated to PAL.
This is the second year in a row Key West has been so honored.
Vice-Mayor Sam Kaufman worked with Florida Keys Media's Rick Lopez to make this happen, noting that Key West has always been a baseball town. The commission, during this week's regular meeting, proclaimed August 15 a Miami Marlins Day.
The Marlins will be playing the Atlanta Braves on the evening of August 13. Tickets are available on the PAL website.
