Its vs. their

Let's look at a sentence found online:

The Marlins should be signaling to its fan base that the building blocks are being put into place for a sustained run of excellence — that management knows what it is doing here.

I'm not sure "its fan base" goes with the Marlins. I'd think they "their" would  work better here.

Again, what do YOU think?
