Marlins president David Samson blames Opening Night lines on rush of fans

When Dan Marino threw out the ceremonial pitch on Opening Night, there were only 12,000 people inside Marlins Park, according to team president David Samson — and another 6,000 when Jose Fernandez threw the first pitch of the game. So when the rest of the largest crowd in stadium history showed up late (Samson said there were about 35,000 butts in the seats among the paid crowd of 37,116), it naturally caused a few headaches.
