Gilberto Santa Rosa is part of the select few artists recognized by Billboard Magazine as an artist of the decade.  A celebrated musician for more than 30 years, “El Caballero de la Salsa,” is one of the most prominent singers of tropical music. Puerto Rican Santa Rosa developed a unique style of "soneo" (improvisation) in salsa that has gained him success in both "tropical" and "romantic" styles of the music.

Each of the Marlins’ 11 Saturday home games this year is designated as a “Super Saturday.”  The highlight of each “Super Saturday” is a post-game concert/show featuring internationally-acclaimed recording artists. The post-game performance 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.

Fans can enhance their “Super Saturday” experience by purchasing VIP “Pit Passes.”  Available for $25 each at, the passes provide on-the-field access to the post-game concert. For more information on Super Saturdays and to purchase tickets, call 1-877-MARLINS (627-5467) or visit the Marlins’ official websites at and
