  1                    Senate Resolution No. ____

  2         A resolution commending the Florida Marlins for

  5  

  6         WHEREAS, the staffing brilliance of General Manager

  7  Larry Beinfest throughout the 2003 Major League Baseball

  8  Season enabled the Florida Marlins to rise from the obscurity

  9  of second-division standing to championship form, acquiring

10  key players at critical moments during the season to

11  facilitate an incredible finish at season's end, and

12         WHEREAS, under the leadership of Manager Jack McKeon,

13  the Marlins won more games than they lost, rising above .500,

14  becoming a first-division team, and defeating six other

15  contenders to earn a Wild Card berth in the National League's

16  2003 East Division Championship Series, and

17         WHEREAS, after losing the opener in the five-game East

18  Division Championship Series to the San Francisco Giants, the

19  Marlins won the next three games, two of which were emotional

20  thrillers at home, winning the Series and propelling them into

21  the National League Division Championship Series against the

22  West Division Championship Chicago Cubs, and

23         WHEREAS, after narrowly winning the opener of the

24  seven-game National League Division Championship Series

25  against the Cubs, the Marlins lost the next three games, but

26  grittily rebounded to win the final three games, claim the

27  National League Pennant, and become the opponent of the New

28  York Yankees in the 2003 World Series, and

29         WHEREAS, after winning a close game in the opener of

30  the World Series, the Florida Marlins lost the next two games,

31  but confidently rebounded to convincingly win the next three

                                  1
