MIAMI (CBSMiami.com) – He’s been with the team through the good times and all of the really bad seasons; but now that the Miami Marlins have a new name and new home, Billy the Marlin got a quick makeover as well.
The basic look of Billy is the same, but there have been colorful changes to the team’s mascot. Billy will now sport the team’s new colors, blue, red-orange, yellow, and black.
“The new look of Billy perfectly complements the new look of the Miami Marlins,” said Sean Flynn, Marlins SVP of Marketing. “By utilizing the same color scheme, which represents Miami and its diverse cultural and geographical mix, we are confident fans will embrace Billy’s new style.”
The new and improved Billy will make his first public appearance during the Marlins’ visit to U.S. military in Japan, Guam, and Hawaii.
