On April 2, the first Florida Marlins Baker Concrete Super Saturday will feature a post-game performance by one of the hottest recording artists today, â€œMr. Worldwide,â€ Pitbull. First pitch versus the New York Mets is set for 7:10 p.m. at Sun Life Stadium (2267 NW 199 Street, Miami Gardens, 33056).
Miami-born Cuban-American recording artist Pitbull, a.k.a. Armando Christian PÃ©rez, is a chart-topping crossover star who has taken the Billboard Top 10 singles charts by storm with his recent string of hits including â€œOn the Floorâ€ with Jennifer Lopez, â€œI Like Itâ€ with Enrique Iglesias, â€œHey Babyâ€ featuring T-Pain, and â€œBon Bon.â€ Pitbull debuted on Lil Jon’s 2002 album Kings of Crunk, after which he released his debut album in 2004 titled M.I.A.M.I. and hit singles â€œCuloâ€ and â€œToma.â€ Pitbull released his sophomore album El Mariel in 2006, followed by The Boatlift in 2007. In 2009, Pitbull released his fourth album, Pitbull Starring in REBELUTION, which included his highest charting single ever â€œI Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho)â€ and follow-up top-10 hit â€œHotel Room Service.â€ Pitbull released a full-length debut Spanish-language album titled Armando last year and is expected to release his latest album, Planet Pit, sometime in 2011.
Each of the Florida Marlins’ 11 Saturday home games this year is designated as a â€œSuper Saturday.â€ The highlight of each â€œSuper Saturdayâ€ is a post-game concert/show featuring internationally-acclaimed recording artists. The concert is free with each ticket purchased for that evening’s game. Baker Concrete Super Saturdays also include pregame parties at The Strike Zone at Gate H featuring celebrity, player and alumni autograph sessions, appearances from Billy The Marlin, Lil’ Billy, the Mermaids and Manatees, special prizes, live TV/radio broadcasts and giveaways.
