2014 Marlins Visit Our Troops

MARLINS VISIT TROOPS IN KUWAIT, OMAN AND UNITED ARAB EMIRATES

The Marlins organization visited U.S. troops stationed in Kuwait, Oman and United Arab Emirates from January 27 through February 3, 2014. The tour, organized by Armed Forces Entertainment (AFE), marked the fifth visit to U.S. military personnel stationed overseas. This was the second time the Marlins visited Kuwait. In 2010, the Marlins became the first Major League Baseball team to take active players to visit U.S. troops deployed overseas.

Representing the Marlins on this tour were former Marlins Outfielder & 1997 World Series Champion Cliff Floyd, former Marlins Catcher & 1997 World Series Champion Charles Johnson, Marlins Vice President & General Manager Dan Jennings, Executive Vice President of Ballpark Operations & Events Claude Delorme, Director of Community Outreach Angela Smith and two members of the Marlins Energy Team.

Throughout the tour, Marlins players, the Marlins Energy Team and front office staff participated in activities such as baseball clinic, Energy Team Performances, meet and greets, autograph sessions and participated in a softball game with U.S. soldiers.
