Marlins to Allow All Musical Instruments Into Games But Banned Two Specific Items

The Miami Marlins announced some fun changes on Thursday to their fan experiences this upcoming season, but the excitement comes with a few restrictions.

Marlins fans can now bring any flags or instruments into LoanDepot Park. The team even encourages fans to bring these items, and fans will be allowed to play the instruments during exciting moments in the game. 

The two items not allowed? Pots and pans, even though some people may consider them “instruments.”

The decision to bring flags into the stadium was inspired by the Marlins’ planning over 15 Heritage Celebration events this season. 

“We know how special baseball is for our community, many with roots in the Caribbean, and we are going to bring that passion and energy back in a special way,”Marlins president of business operations Caroline O’Connor said in a press release. “We want fans dancing, playing their drums, waving their flags, and chanting along to every pitch! LoanDepot park is going to look, sound and feel different this year.”

Marlins fans will get to experience this new game energy March 28 in their Opening Day matchup against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
