Marlins poster prizes! Posters look great at any party, theyre
colorful and typically take up a large space. However, they
are also great to give away as prizes to any games you might
have planned while your guests watch the game. You might consider
putting up the posters in the space BEHIND the TV set that
everyone will be watching the game on. Then, at different
times throughout the game (either random times or after mini
games have been played and won) award different guests the
opportunity to choose which of the posters that theyve
won and that theyd like to take home with
them! See below for online poster resources.
your guests on a Baseball themed scavenger hunt! You can either
create your own lists or download one CLICK
some games involving aiming a whiffle ball. Whiffles balls
are fun because they are light and change direction very easily.
Setting up a simple target to aim at in your backyard should
do the trick, though if you have a larger space consider allowing
the players to hit the ball with a plastic bat. If you are
choosing the latter, make sure that the target is larger as
its much more difficult to hit your target hitting the
ball with the bat.
fun party invitations, use Miami Marlins baseball cards! You
can either put a single baseball card inside the envelope
with each party invitation you mail out OR you can put the
information ON the card itself. Print all of the information

Miami Marlins Penny Pitch. Set up a few Los Angeles Dodgers
baseball caps (face up such that they could catch a penny
if one was thrown its way) on the ground some distance away.
Around the Miami Marlins caps arrange OTHER teams caps
in a similar fashion. Each player is to throw five pennies
towards the arrangement of hats, hoping their pennies land
inside the Miami Marlins caps. They will receive 5 points
for each penny that does. For every penny that lands in ANOTHER
cap (some other team) TWO points are taken away from their
score. Once each player has had a chance to throw their five,
determine a winner by seeing who has the most points!
the colors of the Miami Marlins are red-orange, black, silver,
blue, yellow and white, consider getting these colors of construction
paper and creating a paper chain for decorating. This is an
activity that the kids can even get in on (and take over if
) They are simple to create - you can
get creative, too, on your color arrangement. For example
you can alternate colors or have several links of one color
before changing to a new color.
your hands one wrapping paper in the team colors. These are
great for decorating, creating table place mats, centerpieces,
cutting into confetti and for making goodie bags.
