The first players to wear the new unis in an actual game: the Marlins contingent of Surprise Saguaros. From left to right: Corey Hart (the Suns hitting coach, not the Brewers OF), Dan Jennings, Evan Reed, Kyle Skipworth, Alex Sanabia, Paul Gran, Kevin Mattison, AJ Ramos, Matt Dominguez.
H/T SoFlaMarlins for the picture. It's not official yet, but looking at Emilio Bonifacio and Omar Infante wearing them pretty much seals it right?
It is real. Looks like I'll be rocking my "retro gear" for a long time. Maybe they'll realize how silly they look in a few years like the Florida Panthers and go back to their roots. That is if Loria lets go of the team or we don't win another World Series.
