21 days to go. I was sort of indifferent to baseball until we actually got a team in Florida in 1993. It was a collection of castoffs, the flotsam and jetsam of the Major and AAA leagues that made up that first Marlins club. Chuck Carr, an average fielder and below average hitter on any other team became a star in Miami. Not because of his skill on the field. Oh he could make them pay if he got on base. He was a fast runner and threat to steal from any base. But you can't steal first. However, with his easy charisma, and engagement with the fans and community he became the "face" of the Florida Marlins and one of my favorite players. So I could have gone with Roger Clemens, Jeff Kent, Jimmy Key or a dozen others but instead here is 21 Chuck Carr
By the way, were those not the best Marlins uniforms or what? Much more "Miami" than that awful get up they have now.
