After some colorful modifications, South Florida’s favorite fish, Billy The Marlin, has returned better than ever. Standing eight-feet tall, this new and improved Billy will reflect the Miami Marlin’s new colors and new logo.
The new Billy The Marlin will feature the team’s colors — blue, red-orange, yellow and black.
“The new look of Billy perfectly complements the new look of the Miami Marlins,” said Sean Flynn, Marlins senior vice president of marketing. “By utilizing the same color scheme, which represents Miami and its diverse cultural and geographical mix, we are confident fans will embrace Billy’s new style. Just as they have embraced our new brand by buying Miami Marlins tickets and merchandise at record-breaking numbers.”
Billy The Marlin, an icon representing baseball in South Florida for more than 18 years, has been ranked as one of the most popular mascots in professional sports. The new Billy is making his first appearances as part of the Marlins’ fourth visit to U.S. military personnel stationed overseas. The Marlins organization is visiting U.S. troops stationed in Japan, Guam and Hawaii through Dec. 15.
Billy The Marlin was handpicked not only for his skill, cunning and great competitive nature, but most of all for his outstanding sense of humor and great rapport with baseball fans of all ages.
