A message to Miami Marlins fans from Ely Sussman, founder of Fish On First and former managing editor of Fish Stripes:
Thanks to you, we have outgrown our SB Nation affiliation. Fish Stripes was conceived as a conventional personal blog. More than 18 years later, SB Nation wants to keep it that way.
The Marlins fanbase deserves more. That’s why I gradually filled out our staff with Marlins experts, most of whom are embedded in the South Florida community. We began doing in-person credentialed coverage and now have a presence at every Marlins home game (plus a lot of the road ones).
