Marlins say adios to "Florida" on road uniforms

NewUniforms3.jpgIn preparation for becoming the “Miami” Marlins when they move into their new ballpark in 2012, the Florida Marlins are dropping “Florida” from their gray road uniforms this season and replacing it with “Marlins.” They’re also dropping the ‘F’ from the left sleeve. See photos at left.

Symbolic for now, of course, but a significant move nonetheless.

"This is just the first of many re-branding initiatives that will be introduced during the transition to the new ballpark in Miami," Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria said in a statement released by the team. "We believe this change will better reflect the team’s commitment to the South Florida community and will provide an enhanced look to the Marlins brand that fans will embrace."
