Bahamas Baseball Association will receive a portion of ticket sales revenue. This Saturday, June 25, at 4:10 p.m. at LoanDepot Park, the Miami Marlins will take the field in full uniform to celebrate the second Bahamian Heritage Celebration. The 24-year-old second baseman from the Bahamas, Jasrado “Jazz” Chisholm Jr., who is only the seventh Bahamian in Major League Baseball (MLB) history, is the subject of the Bahamian Heritage Celebration.
The Miami Marlins, the Bahamas Consulate General (Miami) Office, the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism, Investments & Aviation (BMOTIA), the National Sports Authority (NSA) of The Bahamas, and the Bahamas Baseball Association (BBA) have joined forces to create the Heritage Celebration, which will highlight “Jazz,” the Marlins’ Bahamian player, while also exposing ticketholders to various facets of Bahamian culture.
The Heritage Celebration will include a pregame Junkanoo rush out led by The Bahamas Junkanoo Revue of Miami and legendary Junkanooers Barabbas Woodside and Langston Longley as well as a postgame concert featuring well-known rhythmic Bahamian music against a backdrop of Bahamian themed colors, aquamarine, gold, and black.
Bahamians are encouraged to bring their goatskin drums, Bahamian flags, and other memorabilia to the special Bahamian Heritage celebrating game from all throughout Florida, the United States, and the Bahamian archipelago. However, it should be mentioned that the stadium severely forbids the use of noisemakers like cowbells and wind instruments.
An exclusive Bahamian Heritage Marlins jersey and admission to the pregame and postgame events are included with the purchase of a Bahamian Heritage Ticket Package. This year, loanDepot is giving fans the opportunity to win a collectible Jazz Chisholm Jr. bobblehead memento.
The Bahamas Baseball Association will receive a portion of the proceeds from the special ticket package in order to promote local baseball locally. The unique Bahamian Heritage Celebration t-shirt and festivities are not accessible to attendees with general game tickets. The Bahamas’ government will send a delegation to the thrilling event in Florida, including the Hon. Mario Bowleg, Minister of Youth Sports and Culture, and members of his staff, as well as Latia Duncombe, Acting Director General, Dr. Kenneth Romer, Deputy Director General, Senator Hon. Randy Rolle, Consultant, Global Relations.
