Based out of Miami since the 1993 season, the Marlins are one of the newest franchises in Major League Baseball and the second-youngest club in the NL East. Originally playing in the suburbs of Miami Gardens from 1993-2011 and known as the Florida Marlins, the franchise moved to the city in 2012 and was re-branded as the Miami Marlins. The franchise has the distinct honor of being the only team in the MLB to have won a World Series title each time they have made the postseason, which they did in 1997 and 2003.
Led by stalwarts Gary Sheffield, Livan Hernandez, Moises Alou and Edgar Renteria, the Marlins notched their first title in 1997 and knocked off the New York Yankees in 2003 to take home their second world title. Since then the club has not made the postseason, and the club's talent pool suffered a tragic loss late in the 2016 season when 2013 National League Rookie of the Year pitcher Jose Fernandez died in a boating accident.
