MIAMI — Buzzzzz! For one night, the sound of the World Cup is coming to Florida Marlins baseball.
Like it or not.
As a tie-in with World Cup fever in soccer-mad South Florida, when the Marlins play host to the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday, the first 15,000 fans will receive an air horn — half the size, but fairly similar to a vuvuzela, the omnipresent noisemaker that’s all the rage in South Africa right now.
It’s an idea the Marlins have kicked around for months, with the goal being to create a buzz — so to speak.
