Based in Miami, Florida, United States – The Florida Marlins are a professional baseball team established in 1993 as an expansion franchise. The team is part of the East Division of the Major League Baseball’s National League.

They were first noticed with their teal uniforms that matched their nickname “Marlins” or “The Fish”. As a new team then, they had their beginning path with wins and losses. It didn’t take long and they soon began garnering awards and championships. They have been to playoffs two times without becoming division champions. They won these two playoffs as wild cards for both times.

Important Moments and Accomplishments

They won two World Series titles. The Marlins first reached and won the World Series in 1997, which led them to set a record by reaching the World Series in their 5th season. They won four games out of the seven-game championship match. Their win also led Liv?Hern?ez to be awarded as the MVP for the 1997 World Series. In 2003, they had their second time to win the World Series championship title. They played against New York Yankees. The team’s Josh Beckett won as that season’s MVP.
