Marlins Will Wear 1956 Throwbacks on Saturday

Friday, July 19, 2013

Shortly after Logan Morrison spilled the beans on Twitter, the Marlins' told reporters that the team will be wearing 1956 Miami Marlins uniforms tomorrow (above) in Milwaukee as part of the Brewers' Negro League tribute (the Brewers will wear 1923 Milwaukee Bears unis). Below is a photo of the Marlins' unis, which look almost exactly like the version we posted last week:

We love that look, especially the shoulder patch. The team points out that the "29" patch honors Satchel Paige, the legendary Negro League pitcher who played for the Marlins (then a Triple-A club in the International League) from 1956 through 1958. We hope this is not the last time the Marlins trot out these uniforms (they have worn versions of the 1980s Marlins uniform in the past, which you can view here). 

Just before the Marlins unveiled their new uniforms in 2011, Ted wrote this about the 1950s uniforms
A blue and orange combo would pay homage to the old Miami Marlins (see left), which I think would be pretty cool.
Pretty cool, indeed.
