George: Get used to plenty of good seats being available at Miami Marlins home games

Of course, baseball at its intimate best, with the stripped-down Marlins puttering along at 1-7, simply does not appeal to everyone. There’s always something to do at the ballpark, though. Stargazing through the open roof on a comfortable April night, now there’s a romantic notion for you. And for the kids, there’s the latest variation on “Where’s Waldo,” that kooky search for a favorite character in the crowd.

We call it “Find Jeffrey Loria,” and in 2013 it’s apparently not going to be as easy as usual.

On Monday, he must have been in a suite because nobody saw him. On Tuesday, perhaps feeling a bit friskier, Loria came walking unnoticed through the seats in the second inning of a 3-2 loss to the Atlanta Braves. He settled inconspicuously in the seventh row near the Miami dugout, not at his customary second-row location, and soon was seen wearing a baseball cap, another deviation from the norm.

Incognito? Not exactly. Eager to announce his presence? Well, no, that’s not exactly it either.

More than anything, Loria and his low-budget club are just trying to find ways to feel comfortable in their own home again. These two nights at Marlins Park have been stinkers, with a two-hit shutout loss to Atlanta before the big crowd Monday and a meager four-hit output Tuesday.

Thanks to Butch.
