Loria to spend Marlins opening day with San Antonio officials


Recommended Posts





Since they'll be in Texas, Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria and team President David Samson have invited San Antonio leaders to join them in Houston for the April 3 opener between the Marlins and Astros.


The invitation was extended to Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff, who is leading the effort to lure the Marlins to San Antonio, and his wife; Mayor Phil Hardberger and his wife; and several county commissioners.


"He'll be happy to sit and watch the game with Jeffrey Loria and talk to him about the potential for San Antonio being a home for the Marlins," Hardberger spokesman J. J. Saulino said.


Wolff submitted a stadium financing proposal to the Marlins earlier this month.


Staff writers Sarah Talalay and Juan C. Rodriguez contributed to this report.

For the sake of this franchise's own future I hope the fish get whooped 96-1 on opening day. Then maybe the San Antonio people realize they are bidding on what is basically a minor league team and pull their offer off the table.


The on field product that they'll be seeing is irrelevant, they know that the payroll would be significantly increased from where it is now if there was a steady income from a stadium.
