The final Marlins FanFest at Sun Life Stadium will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. ET on Saturday.
In 2012, the team will be moving into their retractable-roof park in the Little Havana section of Miami.
FanFest on Saturday is an ideal way for fans to meet the players, coaching staff and members of the front office. There will be a number of activities, including autograph signings and town hall style meetings.
Saturday also marks the first day individual game tickets go on sale. Fans can purchase tickets at the stadium or on www.marlins.com.
Opening Day is at home on April 1 against the Mets.
It will be a busy day for the Marlins players, because after FanFest, they will be returning to Jupiter, Fla., to get their workout in at the Roger Dean Stadium complex.
The workout, set for 3:30 p.m., is open to the public.

FanFest on Saturday marks the start of selling individual game tickets for the 2010 Marlins season.
Tickets for Florida’s home games go on sale at noon at www.marlins.com and at Sun Life Stadium.
The only scheduled home games not available beginning on Feb. 13 are for the June 28-30 series against the Mets. While it hasn’t officially been announced yet, that three-game series with New York is being moved to San Juan, Puerto Rico.
So those games will not be available at this time to fans seeking seats for the 2010 season.
FanFest runs from noon to 6 p.m. at Sun Life Stadium, and it is an opportunity to meet players and get autographs.
Select-a-seat opportunities also are available for those seeking season tickets.
This will be the second to last FanFest at Sun Life Stadium, because the Marlins will be moving into their new ballpark in 2012. Fans who purchase season tickets now will receive priority seating at the new ballpark.
Admission to FanFest is free, but there is a $5 parking fee. That moneny, however, can go toward the purchase of a ticket.
