Miami Marlins president of baseball operations Michael Hill believes his club became stronger as a team after dealing with a COVID-19 outbreak that interrupted their season in late July and early August.

"In a matter of days, it went from one player with the virus to four players to 13 players to 15 players to 18 players."

Miami ended up securing the No. 6 seed in the 2020 playoffs, posting a winning season following a 105-loss campaign last year. Prior to this season, the team hadn't made the postseason since winning the 2003 World Series.
