The Florida Marlins' 1998 season started off with the team trying to repeat as World Series Champions, a title they won from 1997. Their manager was Jim Leyland. They played home games at Pro Player Stadium. They finished with a record of 54-108, 5 in the NL East. The team is notable for having arguably the biggest fire sale in sports history, auctioning off nearly all of their most notable players.
