Clark Spencer brings you the latest news and nuggets about the Miami Marlins

About This Blog

Clark Spencer saw his first major-league game in 1965 from the sun deck at old Crosley Field in Cincinnati, an afternoon twin bill against the Cubs in which Reds pitcher Sammy Ellis started and lost the first game but emerged from the bullpen to win the second in relief. Spencer has been covering the Marlins for The Miami Herald since 1999. When he's assigned to the team on the road, he usually spends his free mornings searching used bookstores to add to his collection of National Book Award winners for fiction.
