If you don't know who Marlins Man is, he's the guy at every big MLB game wearing an orange Miami Marlins jersey and orange visor behind home plate. An attorney whose real name is Laurence Leavy, he's loaded with money and thinks of himself quite highly.
But for whatever reason, Marlins Man decided to go on Twitter and divulge one of his family's deepest, presumably darkest secrets:
So I am putting this out there before someone accuses me of hiding it..— Marlins_Man (@Marlins_Man) December 14, 2018
2019 is 100th Anniversary of @MLB Black Sox Scandal, and yes Arnold Rothstein was relative
His Sister Edith Rothstein married Henry Lustig, owner of Longchamps restaurants. His niece, my mom is Janet Lustig
Coming up in 2019 is the 100th anniversary of the Black Sox Scandal in which eight members of the 1919 Chicago White Sox were accused of intentionally losing the World Series against the Cincinnati Reds for money from a gambling syndicate led by Arnold Rothstein. All eight, including "Shoeless" Joe Jackson, were banned from baseball for life. None have been reinstated.
So nobody accuses Marlins Man of hiding this, he wanted to make it known that he's related to Rothstein. His mother, Janet Lustig, is Rothstein's niece. Go figure!

It's a good thing he got ahead of this, because you know people were just waiting to out Marlins Man, whose family is directly connected to one of the biggest sports scandals ever.
