You knew it was only a matter of time before a big league team embraced the Vuvuzelas, those annoying horns heard during World Cup matches that sound like millions of bees . The only surprise here is that the Rays weren’t the first team to turn the trick as the Marlins will be handing out vuvuzelas on Saturday night for their in-state match against the Rays

Like it or not, Marlins players – and fans – will get an earful of World Cup soccer atmosphere Saturday night at Sun Life Stadium…Plastic horns will be given to the first 15,000 fans as part of a promotion to capitalize on the World Cup buzz…The horns to be given away before Florida’s game against Tampa Bay are similar to but not the same as the soccer horns, said Sean Flynn, the Marlins’ vice president for marketing…”They’re not as buzzing as vuvuzelas, but they’re loud.”

OK, so they aren’t real vuvuzelas. But that is fitting since that don’t really have a baseball team in Miami.

    This is horrible. I love soccer, but these were not made for baseball. 🙁

    I wonder what they'll do w/ the 5000 left over.

  3. Chris says:

    Sooooooooo, the Marlins have heard the thousands of complaints about these things, how they are ruining a world wide tourney and with this information they think it is a good idea to give them away? Brilliant!

    About time baseball has some noise in the stadium. I go to the Chicago Fire games (MLS), I heard a few vuvuzelas and crowd cheering with the drums and horns. Then, I go to a baseball game (Rays vs.White Sox) in April it is too quiet until someone makes an outstanding play. Also, in winterball in the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico, they are alot of crowd noise including vuvuzelas, drums, cymbals and horns. I don't mind the vuvuzelas, ti does not bother me because I got used to it by going to soccer games.
