The Miami Marlins unveiled a new look as part of the “City Connect Series” partnership between Nike and MLB, paying homage to the Cuban Sugar Kings, a Latin American club that aimed to become the first MLB team outside the United States.
“The new uniform speaks to the legacy, culture, passion and pride for baseball in the South Florida community, while celebrating the personality and confidence of our city,” the team said. “The Marlins City Connect uniform is inspired by Latin America’s contribution to baseball, with a legacy red jersey that captures the energetic vibe and culture throughout South Florida and Latin America.”
The Marlins will wear the new uniform this weekend against the New York Mets, following Cuban Independence Day, with Saturday's Cuban Heritage Night at loan Depot park.
Included in the initial City Connect Series, are the Arizona Diamondbacks, Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs, Chicago White Sox, Los Angeles Dodgers, and San Francisco Giants.
