Marlins president running for workers
Marlins president David Samson is going the extra mile — and then some — to recognize the workers who built Marlins Park.
Samson is running a double-marathon on Friday to honor the workers as well as raise money for various charities.
The 52-mile trek started in Pompano, and the Marlins president will wind his way down into Miami-Dade County. If all goes according to plan, Samson will be jogging into Marlins Park about a half hour before the Marlins are set to open a four-game series with Arizona.
