Laurence Leavy, better known as Marlins Man or Marlins Guy (born October 13, 1956), is an American attorney and sports fan from North Miami Beach, Florida who, beginning in 2012, gained notoriety for his frequent appearances at major sporting events while wearing orange Miami Marlins apparel. His seating placement in view of broadcast cameras has drawn attention at the World Series, Super Bowl, NBA Finals, Kentucky Derby, College World Series and other events. Leavy has been described by USA Today as a "ubiquitous superfan".Contents
Leavy announced in a tweet in July 2016 that he was originally a fan of the Atlanta Braves from 1974–1993. Leavy stood out in his bright orange Miami Marlins jersey while attending a 2012 NBA Playoffs basketball game featuring the Miami Heat, in which the team distributed white T-shirts prior to the game. After attending a Marlins game the same day, the white T-shirt was stolen from his seat, causing him to be visible on television. Later that year, Leavy was seen sitting behind home plate at AT&T Park during the World Series. The following day, a park ranger near the Golden Gate Bridge coined the term "Marlins Man". Leavy credits his rise to prominence to the new color scheme introduced by the Miami Marlins in 2012. He lists his favorite sports teams as the Miami Marlins, Heat, Dolphins and Florida State Seminoles. He is also notable for being one of Pardon My Take's "Wokest Guests", along with A. J. Green and Addison Russell. On July 20th, 2017, he went on a podcast called "The McNeil Show" and claimed responsibility for coining the hashtag #AllLivesMatter and also said he held the copyright to the hashtag #NotAllHeroesWearCapes.Events attended This is a dynamic list and may never be able to satisfy particular standards for completeness.
