You Won’t Believe What This Marlins Fan Did For A Fellow Marlins Fan

It can be hard to remember sometimes that the world is a wonderful place…

One young Marlins fan who attends Miami Senior High School  was at a Marlins vs Rockies game this week and unfortunately lost his wallet.

 Lucky for him, a good-hearted fellow Marlins fan found it. Even more remarkable, that anonymous Marlins fan also did THIS…

 Miami High Wallet 

The story rings particularly close to home as Miami Senior High is a neighbor of ours and a Partner School in our MASPP program.

This is a just little testament to the quality of Marlins fans. #DiehardFish Fans stick together!
