Comic Con and the Marlins

There was some comic relief for the Marlins during their recent trip to San Diego. The team hotel was next to the convention center, the host site of the rabidly popular Comic Con, which attracts about 120,000 people to San Diego.

Many guests at the Marriott where the team was staying came dressed for the occasion.

Marlins manager Fredi Gonzalez said on the elevator leaving San Diego, he was standing next to two Star Wars storm troopers.

Comic Con recognizes all things animated, and comic characters were seen throughout the city.

“Everybody has their own thing,” Gonzalez said.
