The Miami Marlins made a couple of minor but very welcome changes to their uniforms for the upcoming 2024 season. The club unveiled the tweaks during their Fanfest on Friday evening.
The home white and road grey jerseys remain the same, as does the cap. The changes come to the existing black alternate jersey and what was previously the blue Spring Training (and now a regular season alternate) jersey.
On the black jersey, the Marlins simply made the logo visible. Crazy idea, right? The “Marlins” wordmark across the chest changes from black trimmed in blue and red to white trimmed in the same blue and red. The same upgrade is applied to the player’s name and number on the back.
The Marlins branding ain’t bad; it’s just hard to see. This one small change is an immediate improvement to the entire uniform set.
But that’s not all!
The team also promoted their blue Spring Training jersey from exclusive to the exhibition schedule to an option for the regular season — and changed the design too. Previously, the jersey featured the Marlins alternate “M” logo in the top left corner of the chest; now, just like their other in-season uniforms, it’ll have the team’s name scripted across the front, in this case, “Marlins” in black with white and red trim.
Here’s a closer look at the 2024 black jersey and blue jersey scripts, as well as the details of the trim and drop shadow colours:
Nothing else changes with the Marlins — they’ll still wear the ADT patch and the Marlins logo on their sleeves, and the City Connect Sugar Kings uniform also carries on into 2024.
The Marlins weren’t the only National League East club to announce a uniform change for the upcoming season; earlier in the afternoon, the Washington Nationals introduced their new road grey jersey as well as a new pullover alternate uniform.
