Guillen Hopes to Make Miami Baseball Town

MIAMI (AP) — This is what Ozzie Guillen envisions: A boisterous crowd in a packed stadium, and a one-sided outcome that sends spectators home happy.

On Friday he’s off to Spain to see the bullfights.

When he returns from vacation with his wife, Guillen will start his new job as manager of the Florida Marlins. Again the idea will be to entertain fans and produce results that keep them coming back.

Animated and provocative, Guillen enlivens a franchise that has long been the NL’s toughest sell. As he makes headlines, he hopes to make Miami a baseball town.
