The Miami Marlins are a professional baseball team that plies their trade in the Major League Baseball (MLB) as a member club of the National League (NL) East division. They first played in the 1993 season as an expansion team as Florida Marlins. Wayne Huizenga, CEO of Blockbuster Entertainment Corporation, was awarded an expansion franchise in the National League (NL) for a $95 million expansion fee and the team began operations in 1993.
The Marlins won the World Series in 1997 and 2003, yet the two titles were trailed by dubious periods where the team auctions off every one of the extravagant players and reconstructed. Somewhere in the range of 2003 and 2019, the group’s two World Series runs additionally denoted their sole postseason appearances. Their three-season finisher capabilities and seven winning seasons are the least among MLB franchises.
In spite of always losing a division title, the Marlins are the main team to make the end of the season games and dominate a World Series in their initial two winning seasons.
