PHOTO: Marlins jerseys will be awesome Saturday

By Matt Snyder | Baseball Writer

It's too bad these aren't their regular uniforms because this is an unbelievable improvement on the current dreck the Marlins wear (via Marlins media relations department):

These are throwbacks to the 1956 Triple-A Miami Marlins -- and these are the uniforms that are to be worn in Milwaukee on Saturday as a Negro Leagues tribute. The "29" patch seen above is in honor of the great Satchel Paige (via Joe Capozzi on Twitter), a Hall of Fame pitcher who threw for more than 21 years in the Negro Leagues and eventually made 179 appearances in the majors -- 178 in his 40s and one at the age of 58. He played for the Triple-A Miami Marlins from 1956-58.

Well done, Marlins.
