They’re doing it again! The Miami Marlins are supporting the Key West Police Athletic League by proclaiming the second game of the August 13th double header as Key West Night.
At that game, Mayor Teri Johnston will throw out the first pitch. At half time, 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 or 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 15th a Miami Marlins Day.
The Marlins will be playing the Atlanta Braves the evening of August 13th. Tickets are available on the PAL website.
