Are you looking for new ways to attract a new fans to the ballpark? Are you looking for ways to attract a new demographic to your games? Battling a low payroll and blistering hot summer days at the ballpark, the Florida Marlins have gone to new lengths to attract and entertain fans at the stadium:
The Marlins have created two (2) sets of dance/cheer teams... The Mermaids and Manatees.
- The Florida Marlins' Mermaid squad, a group that has been around since 2004, can be hired to do autograph sessions, photograph sessions, and dance performances at parties and corporate events.
- The Marlins created the Manatees squad in 2008 after putting out an open casting call for fans who have bellies with the biggest jiggle, big feet with the best dance moves, and enthusiasm that will rock Marlins fans out of their seats
- The group performs at all Marlins home games played on Friday and Saturday night
