The Florida (now Miami) Marlins were only four years old when they won their first World Series in 1997. It only took a year for then-owner Huizenga to completely dismantle the championship team for financial reasons in one of the largest fire sales in sports history. Needless to say, this did little (meaning nothing) for the man who had spearheaded the team’s creation. Fans felt betrayed by Huizenga’s trades and game attendance decreased drastically. Huizenga, who had already made millions through Blockbuster, Waste Management, Inc. and AutoNation, sold the team in 1998.
