The Miami Marlins plan to honor the victims and survivors of last week’s deadly shooting at Stoneman Douglas High in Parkland, Fla., by wearing the school’s caps during its first spring training game.
The Marlins will wear the caps Friday when they open Grapefruit League action against the St. Louis Cardinals. The shooting — which claimed the lives of 17 people — has already inspired Marlins players to act in other ways too.
“I thought I would jump at the opportunity to be there and spend some time with those guys,” Bour said. “After it happened, I let them know if there was anything I could do, I’d be more than willing to help them.”
New @Marlins Lewis Brinson from Coral Springs didn’t go to Douglas but went to the hospital to visit Ben and Maddy. Called them warriors and said it was good to see a smile on their faces. @CBSMiami pic.twitter.com/xiSEpIwMJ9
