Marlins to host 'Legends of Wrestling Night' in August

MIAMI -- The Marlins will be packing an extra punch when they host the Rockies on August 24. Colorado will visit on Miami's first ever "Legends of Wrestling Night" at Marlins Park.

More than a dozen Hall of Fame legends, former world champions and current professionals will be on hand to sign autographs and engage in postgame wrestling matches.

Former WWE/WCW heavyweight champion Bill Goldberg will throw out the first pitch. The wrestlers will sign autographs during the game for fans on the Promenade Level outside of Section 28.

The trip to South Florida will be familiar territory for former WWF tag team champion Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake, former WWF tag team champion Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart and current TNA superstar Wes Brisco. All three hail from Tampa.

Wrestlers are subject to change.
