Ed lost his entire infield the first year,
an infield that turned 17 double plays in 13 games. He then replaced them
with Junior Fuentes at shortstop, Bill Tolli second base, Walter Allen at
first, and third baseman Wade Hardy. The surprise of the year came from their
ace pitcher Herm Mieles, who finished with a record of 9-0.
In the final game of the season, the
Marlins beat the Yorktown Pirates in the bottom of the ninth with a walk-off
single from newcomer Rob Fernandez, a game in which they were down 8-2. Both
teams then celebrated their seasons with a joint cookout.
