Conjured up last year as a fundraiser to help Marlins go to out-of-town tournaments, the event will include the girls team this year and for the first time, a full team of Marlins alumni.
The festivities begin at 6 p.m.
Marlin Mania features wacky ( and not- so- easy) competitions as well as the chance to meet members of the teams.
Chief Marlin Maniac Joe Kocurek has plans again for games this year, but hasn’t yet revealed details. Last year, the fun included an event where competitors had to dip their faces in a bowl of whipped cream before taking the floor for basketball shots.
Other events at the 2010 gala included a free-throw contest wearing sun glasses and using a special ball; a half-court shoot; and an egg race (how you get the egg to the other end of the gym is up to you, but if you break it you must start over).
A ticket ($10 for adults, $5 for kids) will get pizza from Port A Pizzeria, plus a drink and a ticket for a door prize.
Some retro Marlin jerseys showed up last year and were sold to those who wanted to bring back memories of Marlins teams from the past.
