Amidst the excitement of Nathan Evoldi’s Marlins debut and a thrilling 4-2 Marlins victory, fans in attendance did their best Brad Pitt impression by posing the question, “What’s in the box!” That’s right, on July 28th the annual Wives Tackle Box Auction took place. The Marlins Wives collected some of their husbands’ favorite items, gift cards to their restaurants and leisure activities of choice, along with unique autographed items and displayed them in tackle boxes (cuz we’re “the fish”… get it) for fans to bid on.
The event has come and gone and after raising over $6,000 to benefit Shake-A-Leg Miami, here is a look back at some of the unique items up for auction.
Steve Cishek offered up a private pitching lesson at Marlins Park, to go along with an autographed golf photo of himself and a limited edition Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle from his personal collection. Veteran infielder Carlos Lee included an authentic signed Panama jersey from the World Baseball Classic to go along with autographed programs and brochures from his very own cattle ranch for those of you interested in beef for your next bbq. Have you been watching “The Franchise”? If so, you would have recognized LoMo’s Stewie shirt that he wore on the show and was included in his box to go along with autographed items like his toothbrush holder and gift certificates to Mr. Yum’s sushi restaurant, home of the LoMo roll. These are just a handful of cool items that were auctioned off at the event and maybe next year you can be the winner of a suite night compliments of Ozzie Guillen, or hitting lessons with “The Most Interesting Man in Baseball,” Greg Dobbs.
2012 Tackle Boxes included: Jose Reyes, Mark Buehlre, Carlos Lee, Ozzie Guillen, Brett Hayes, John Buck, Justin Ruggiano, Logan Morisson, Emilio Bonifacio, Steve Cishek, Donnie Murphy, Greg Dobbs

No we’re not talking about Heat vs Celtics Game 7! That game pales in comparison to the epic rematch that will be taking place at 5:30pm inside Marlins Park. We’re talking about the Marlins vs Rays Wives Citrus Cup Softball Classic, where the Marlins will try and make it two wins in a row. It was a busy offseason for the team, as trades and pregnancies have opened the door for new faces and newlyweds to make their mark on the series today. So come out and support the ladies as they raise money for their respective charities, Shake-A-Leg Miami and Autism Speaks Tampa Bay.
It should be a great ballgame and don’t be surprised to see returning Marlins starter Brooke Buck go yard, or possibly another sensational web gem from Katelyn Davis of the Rays at Short Stop.
