On February 24, they're casting a team of plus-size males to cheer for their football games. The Marlins plan on "capitalizing on Americans' expanding waistlines," Yahoo news said.
They'll be called the Manatees; yes, named after the bluberous "sea cows," and will cheer on Friday and Saturday home games. For every other game they'll still be using their sexier Mermaids.
Since 2003, the Chicago Bulls have had a cheering team called the Matadors which also consists of overweight men. A photo of the group is seen in the gallery.
