The Marlins bein\g the Marlins, they promptly kicked the guys out before they could even get to their seats.
"It was unbelievable," Barton told the Sun Sentinel. "It was a punch to the gut considering I've been a Marlins fan all my life."
Barton and his friends Jon and Connor Gardner, along with another man who wasn't identified, began walking around the concourse between the first and second innings, attracting a couple of reporters and a photograph or two. They talked up a protest website they've started, rageagainstthemarlins.com.

"We asked police what we were doing wrong, and he said, 'They want you to leave,'" referring to the Marlins, Barton told the Palm Beach Post.
