Some like to call the city of Miami "L.A. South" for all the celebrities who work, play and visit South Beach. It was sooner or later before fans would see some well-recognized people at Marlins Park.
Now here's your social media fix:Our Player Tweet of the Week comes from the first-round pick from the Marlins from the MLB Draft, Andrew Heaney. Make sure you welcome him warmly into the organization.
Woke up this morning and realized it wasn't a dream! So proud to be picked by the Marlins! Can't wait to get started.— Andrew Heaney (@Heandog8) June 5, 2012
Oh, and his birthday was also this week.
Our @Marlins Tweet of the Week comes from the weekend when the Marlins Wives posed for a team picture before they faced the wives of Tampa's players:

Then, there's our new friend Lil' Jose. He's all around Marlins Park, and because of it, he got to meet a former American Idol judge.
Hi-gives all around! Me & my homegirl Paula Abdul were cold loungin' earlier. MC Skat Cat ain't got nuthin' on me!!! twitter.com/Lil_Jose7/stat…— Lil' Jose (@Lil_Jose7) June 6, 2012
Abdul went on to talk with FS Florida Wednesday night to give Stanton high praise:
One more celebrity graced his presence at the Park this week, and it's one of the most prestigious sports figures in Miami sports, Mr. Don Shula.
The Marlins hope to find themselves on the winning side of things this week as the Red Sox come to town and then on the road up north to get even with the Rays.
