Miami Marlins To Wear Teal Throwback Uniforms To Celebrate 30th Anniversary
The Miami Marlins will celebrate their 30th anniversary in 2023, and to mark the occasion, they recently announced they’ll wear teal pinstripe throwback uniforms for at least five Friday home games this season.
The Marlins – who were known as the Florida Marlins at the time – originally wore this uniform, which includes a teal wordmark, teal hat with a teal brim and a teal batting helmet, during the 1993-94 seasons.
Miami last wore this uniform during a three-game series against the San Diego Padres on June 8-10, 2018, albeit with a black batting helmet, as part of its 25th anniversary celebration, going 1-2 that weekend.
“I think, moving forward, we’re going to do a lot better at glorifying this franchise and celebrating what we’ve done over 30 years,” said special assistant Jeff Conine, who played for the Marlins from 1993-97 and 2003-05. “This year is going to be a great kickoff point.”
This season also marks the 20th anniversary of Miami’s second World Series championship, though the franchise wore black pinstripe uniforms with a black wordmark outlined in teal and black hats on their way to winning the Commissioner’s Trophy.
The Marlins play 13 Friday home games in 2023, so it’s unclear exactly what dates the throwback uniforms will be worn. They’ll join the home white, black alternate, gray road and Sugar Kings “City Connect” sets in Miami’s uniform rotation.
