Miami Marlins

The Miami Marlins have set safety protocols and partnered with Lysol to ensure safety this season 

The Miami Marlins began their Spring training, and we are all very excited to see how the team will perform this season. With incredible players on the team, it is looking like Miami is ready to get some wins! Additionally, the team was the first to partner with Lysol and created regulations to ensure everyone’s safety at the stadium. 

The team has some players that are worth highlighting this season. Sandy Leon is a Venezuelan catcher that plays as number 77. He previously played for the Cleveland Indians, Boston Red Sox, and Washington Nationals. Chad Wallach returns this season as a catcher for the Marlins. He has been part of the team since 2013. Jorge Alfaro is a Colombian player that plays as number 38. Pablo Lopez is a Venezuelan pitcher that plays as number 49 on the team. He has been playing with the Marlins since 2017. Lastly, Sandy Alcantara Montero is a Dominical pitcher that joined them back in 2017. 

The Marlins have listened to their fans, whom 71% mentioned that they are concerned about the safety of crowded sporting events. To ease this incommodity, the Marlins became the first baseball team to partner with the RB company that makes Lysol. With this partnership, the Marlins will work with the experts of the cleaning company and effectively disinfect the ballpark. 

Executive Vice President of North America Hygiene for RB, E. Yuri Hermida said, “Strong hygiene and disinfection practices are of utmost importance. Lysol is proud to partner with the Marlins to help inspire fan confidence as they return to the ballpark to continue enjoying America’s pastime.” 

In addition, the Marlins have established safety guidelines for all events and games that will take place at the ballpark. These protocols will enhance the experience of Marlins Park without sacrificing safety. Some of these measures for 2021 include:

Cleaning Measures

Marlins Park enrolled in the WELL Health Safety Rating, partnered with the makers of Lysol, and made sure that frequently touched surfaces are frequently disinfected. Hand sanitizer will also be provided throughout Marlins Park. 

Free-Flow Parking

A parking experience where payments are contactless and the arrival of visitors is made easier. This is a service available at all Marlins Park parking garages. 

Frictionless Entry

Tickets will be digital and can be accessed through the MLB Ballpark App. Upon purchase, fans will be given a specific time to enter the ballpark. This is so that the crowds at the gates will be minimal. Personal bags or food will not be permitted in the park, unless under special circumstances. 

Food and Beverage Experience

Food and beverages will be sold at select locations in the park, and there will be an option for mobile order and pick-up. All items will be packaged and are to be consumed in fans’ assigned seats. The Miami menu will remain available as well, which includes $3 hot dogs and $5 beers. 

Mandatory Face Coverings 

Face coverings will be mandatory for all those entering the ballpark who are age two and older. The masks may be temporarily removed while consuming food and beverage at one’s assigned seat. 

Social Distancing

Signs and floor markers are in place to make sure that patrons stay socially distant at all times. Seats are configured to provide proper distance between groups.

Guests are encouraged to pay electronically at all Marlins concession and retail locations.
