The History of the Miami Marlins

The Miami Marlins are committed to sustained success on the playing field and first-class fan experience off the field, making Marlins Park a must-see destination for South Florida residents and visitors . The Marlins brands of authentic Miami reflects the community’s diversity and passion for family and fun.

The Marlins have celebrated two World Series championships since its inaugural season in 1993. The organization won their first championship in 1997, capped by a walk-off win in South Florida in Game 7 against the Cleveland Indians. Just six short years later, the Marlins were back on top, defeating the heavily favored New York Yankees in the 2003 World Series.

The Miami Marlins’ future is even brighter as the organization builds a roster full of exciting talent as well as invests in the all-around development of its players.
