Florida was awarded an expansion team in 1993, and they paid homage to various baseball clubs teams that had played in Miami in years past by
using the Marlins nickname that minor league teams in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1980s were known as. The team was originally known as the Florida Marlins in
hopes of attracting fans throughout the state.
They changed to the Miami Marlins in 2012 to get financial assistance from the city in order to help pay for their new ballpark.
