Miami Marlins to wear Throwback Jersey

The throwbacks are of the 1956 Triple-A Miami Marlins, which they are scheduled to wear against the Brewers on Saturday as a Negro Leagues tribute.

Curious to note that the “29” patch seen above is in honor of the great Satchel Paige, a Hall of Fame pitcher who threw for more than 21 years in the Negro Leagues and eventually made 179 appearances in the majors, also 178 in his 40s and one at the age of 58.

He even played for the Triple-A Miami Marlins from 1956-58.
