We showed you a bit of a preview of what the Miami Marlins might look like when they take the field in April a few weeks ago. Well, now the official uniforms have been released and some of the most offensive features are gone, but there’s still enough there to make you cover your eyes.
Most of the uniforms here are only slight variations from what the Marlins used to wear (and no we are not talking teal.) The only one that really caught my eye was the orange home alternate.
How could one possibly think this would be a good uniform for a game played outdoors and in the summer. It’s just so bright and wrong.
At least Miami had enough sense to not use an orange hat with a yellow brim to go along with this, the black hat at least offsets the loudness of the uniform just a bit.
One last thing, I always find these sports fashion shows pretty hilarious. Really, why doesn’t Ricky Nolasco walk the runway all the time, he’s clearly found his calling based off this video.

These standard Miami Marlins unifoms are tame compared to the alternates.
The Miami Marlins will open up play when baseball resumes next spring.
This will come with a complete makeover. Everything from the stadium to the team name to yes, the uniforms.
When the Florida Marlins first came into the baseball world, they made teal a baseball color. They quickly went away from that color, but frankly, it would be better than the amount of orange the Marlins might introduce.
Now, these uniforms have not been confirmed by the team, it is just scuttlebutt, but let’s hope Miami can come up with a better idea by the time the season rolls around.
The orange alternates here might be the worst uniforms in baseball if they are actually worn by the Marlins this upcoming season.
The orange alternates are simply gross. There is no way the Marlins could think these are viable uniforms. They could be offset with a black hat, possibly, but the orange and yellow brim is just wrong.
The black alternates aren’t too bad, but the orange brim on the black hats ruin the look. Let’s hope this is all false, but if not, expect some very bright games in Miami this season.
