Grapefruits for all: When the Marlins won the 2003 World Series title, owner Jeffrey Loria awarded his team one of the largest championship rings in professional sport.

Now that the Marlins won the Grapefruit League title, sporting a 19-9 mark in Spring Training games, Loria presented his club with a fitting reward: Grapefruits.

"When you win the Grapefruit League title, you get grapefruits," Loria said on Sunday afternoon.

More than 30 bags of grapefruits were sent out to the players and Girardi.

By percentage points, the Marlins finished ahead of the Reds in the final Grapefruit League standings. The Marlins had a .679 winning percentage, compared to the Reds' 22-11 mark (.667).

I'm totally confused
I think this is from Spring Training 2005. That's why the "interesting and timely" quote was funny.
