Marlins honor community leader on Opening Night

The Marlins will recognize heroes in the community during Monday home games this season -- and Opening Night was no exception.  

Officer Proveyer, a 12-year veteran of the Hialeah Police Department, was saluted for his service before the home team took on the Braves. Proveyer ranked the distinction above seeing a Marlins-Giants 1997 NLDS game and attending the 2003 World Series against the Yankees.
