The Opening Day Of Baseball Season Is Off To A Hot Start

The Opening Day Of Baseball Season Is Off To A Hot Start”

Miami attorney Laurence Leavy - a fixture in South Florida and high-profile ballgames beyond as "Marlins Man" - told ESPN as much Wednesday night.

Leavy is known for wearing his bright orange Marlins jersey in the view of television cameras at major sporting events.

Happ hit the first pitch of the game, which was the first of the 2018 season.

Not only did Happ's leadoff homerun spark an early rally for the Cubs, but it also meant that Cubs reporter Michael Cerami had to take a dip into Lake Michigan.

Leavy this offseason had an awkward face-to-face with new owner Derek Jeter at his first town hall meeting with fans and season-ticket holders, and the two never were able to reconcile. Derek Jeter and his management team's fire sale during the offseason saw most of their stars shipped elsewhere including Giancarlo Stanton, Dee Gordon, Marcell Ozuna and Christian Yelich.

On Monday, Andy Slater of SlaterScoops.com reported that Leavy sent the Marlins a $200,000 check in hopes of landing four season tickets behind home plate for 2018, 2019 and 2020.

Had the Marlins accepted, Leavy would have spent $205 per seat rather than the $250 he was paying previously.
