Two Marlins Inducted Into Baseball Hall Of Fame

     Two former Florida Marlins were inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York on Sunday. Both players only played just one season with the franchise.
     Ivan "Pudge" Rodriguez was with the Marlins for the 2003 season where he helped the club win their second World Series title. He had a .297 batting average with 16 home runs and 85 RBI that year. In 2011 Rodriguez was voted the greatest catcher in Marlins history. He played 21 years in the majors, spent most of his career with the Texas Rangers and participated in 14 All-Star Games.
     Tim Raines played his final season in Major League Baseball with the Marlins which was in 2002. He participated in 98 games and batted .191 with one home run, seven RBI and no stolen bases that season.  Raines spent most of his 23-year career with the Montreal Expos, had 808 career stolen bases and seven All-Star Game appearances.
