    The 1998 Florida Marlins season started off with the team trying to repeat as World Series Champions, a title they won from 1997. Their manager was Jim Leyland. They played home games at Pro Player Stadium. They finished with a record of 54-108, dead last in the NL East. The team is notable for having arguably the biggest fire sale in sports history, auctioning off nearly all of their most notable players. The 1998 Marlins were the first defending World Series champions to finish last in their division, and to date, the only defending champions to finish last in their league.
