[ARCHIVED] Billy the Marlin in Key West

Miami Marlin's mascot, Billy the Marlin, came to Key West today to inform the citizens that another Key West Day will be this coming August.

Billy met with a group of May Sands Montessori students at City Hall, then dropped by the Southernmost Point for an iconic photo.

Vice Mayor Sam Kaufman has worked with local radio producer Rick Lopez and Marlin's organization over the past few years to make Key West Day a reality.  It provides a special day for Key Westers and raises funds for the Police Athletic League.

The event has included specially priced tickets for locals and a chance to come out on the field.  Police Chief Sean Brandenburg threw out the first pitch last year, and Mayor Teri Johnston did it the year before.

Visitors at the Southernmost Buoy had a pleasant surprise today when Billy showed up with a group of City dignitaries as escorts.
