|Miami Marlins Rob Brantly & AJ Ramos set sail on a pirate adventure!|
Last week the Miami Marlins officially kicked off their season with Marlins Ayudan week. This is a wonderful initiative where several players, coaches and staff are visible in the community helping the city of Miami. I was able to cover many of the events as part of Billy’s Bunch, the Miami Marlins kids show that airs on Fox Sports Florida.
My favorite (and the most fun!) event took place at Bluefoot Pirate Adventures in Ft. Lauderdale, with Marlins players AJ Ramos and Rob Brantly. On February 11th, the Marlins escorted a group of students with Billy the Marlin and our kid reporter Frankie on a high seas adventure. Well sort of…it was on the intercoastal…but it was a blast, (literally and figuratively) and produced some very entertaining television thanks to AJ Ramos!
Here’s one of my favorite outtakes of the day that won’t make air. And yes, I’m always thinking like a mom…
- Rob Brantly will dance but not sing on camera.
- AJ Ramos almost blew out his hamstring doing the limbo.
- And Ramos has never been to Disney World, therefore he has never heard the song “yo ho yo ho a pirate’s life for me”.
