There have been "leaked" and "rumored" images floating around the Internet for weeks, but considering Marlins players Emilio Bonifacio are Omar Infante are in this picture, it seems a pretty safe bet these are the uniforms that will be revealed Friday night for the newly-named Miami Marlins.

(Thanks to Brendan Tobin for posting the picture on Twitter)

The orange uniform on the right is going to be the home garb, while the black jersey (under the black coat) on the left will be the Marlins' road uniform.

The official uniform unveiling will take place Friday night in the new Marlins' ballpark at 9 p.m. ET on the "splash stage." The event will be streamed live on, will feature a "fashion show" with the new unis and include appearances by owner Jeffery Loria and new manager Ozzie Guillen. At 11 p.m. ET, fans will be permitted to enter the ballpark and purchase merchandise (further details on

Obviously with new uniforms comes a new logo, so click here to see that.

Marlins real uniforms (finally) leaked

The font they use is terrible.  Looks like an airline name or what you'd see Miami airport spelled with.  Looks like a trip to 1984 with the color scheme too.  There ar way too many colors in just the letering alone.  The max amount of colors a team should be wearing is 2, on these I see orange, blue, yellow, black. Why didn't they just keep the old look and swap the F for an M in the same font? these look like double A uniforms.  If they were going to go this drastic on new uniforms they might as well have changed the name of the team too to something a little more intimidating than a fish.  What is it with Miami and naming their teams after fish.  Miami Marlins..... sounds gay.

The new uniforms are pathetic.
The colors have nothing to do with Miami.
MLB continues to do everything wrong.

From a Marlins fan perspective:

Yes, changes are never easy to digest, especially when it has to do with the franchise colors.

I like the logo. The marlin popping out sideway from the the M, but I do not like the M itself. In my opinion it is too big and they should have kept the same designed M from the original.

The colors will eventually fit in. I was against the change of colors from the beginning, but at this point theres nothing I or the rest of the fans can do, only buy their merchandise and support the team.

Most importantly, I hope the team gets important players and make the playoffs, and why not, win another world series.

Just when you thought the Marlins franchise couldn`t be a bigger joke they roll out those threads.  Leave the orange to the Miami Dolphins and try not to have another fire sale. Shame on MLB again.

All they need are two big ears for the hats, two large white buttons on the jerseys and three finger batting gloves. They've already got Goofy - you know, the guy that approved these designs.

They're sure not Pro Combat Uniforms. Will someone give the Marlins Nike's phone number ..... Please! How to ruin the opening of a beautiful new baseball field: add a bunch of ball players dressed like clowns. Yes P.T. there is a sucker born every minute and in Florida's case, it's the Marlin's management. GO FISH!
