'Marlins Man' attends Preakness, photobombs Pharoah's finish

American Pharoah, ridden by Victor Espinoza, wins the 140th Preakness at Pimlico Race Course on Saturday.

The sports fan known as "Marlins Man," who generated widespread curiosity and Internet fame when he sat behind home plate for the World Series, positioned himself at the finish line at the end of the 140th running of the Preakness on Saturday.

Much like he did on television in Kansas City and San Francisco last fall, Lawrence Levy made an appearance in a prime spot Saturday, appearing in at least one photo at the finish line of American Pharoah's win.


Later, Levy — a Florida lawyer and sports fan — made the rounds at the barns where winner American Pharoah rested after winning the second leg of the Triple Crown.

Levy praised Pimlico Race Course and said he enjoyed the day.


"This is a great racetrack," he said. "I wouldn't say it if it wasn't true."

The Miami fan's next trolling destination? A St. Louis Cardinals game this week.

No doubt, he'll be in his usual spot, right behind home plate, the bright orange Marlins jersey prime for the camera.
