A tradition for the Marlins players has been resurrected. Oh sure, it is only three years old but around here - that's a tradition.
But Willis has resurrected ''Throwback Friday,'' a home-game tradition in which players wear vintage jerseys and uniforms to the ballpark. He and then-Marlin Juan Pierre started the tradition during the 2003 season.
Willis said he feels it helps build camaraderie.
In order to ensure the tradition's success, Willis brought in a box containing about two-dozen vintage jerseys and gave them to his teammates.
So how do the new Marlins feel about this:
"So relax. Let's have some fun out here. This game's fun..."
