The Florida Marlins are down to their final day before morphing into the Miami Marlins (save the tears), and with that comes the announcement that T-shirts, caps and such will go on sale on Saturday at select outlets in South Florida. The team is unveiling its logo and unis Friday in a ceremony at the new ballpark, so you'll have time to decide whether or not you like the brand-new look.
Here's where to find the new apparel come Saturday:
1) Dolphin Mall (11401 NW 12th St.) at Entry 5, near the Marshalls and Burlington Coat Factory. Omar Infante, Gaby Sanchez and Hanley Ramirez will be on hand from 12:45 p.m. to 1:45 p.m.
2) Aventura Mall (19501 Biscayne Boulevard) on the Lower Level near JC Penny.
3) Sawgrass Mills Mall (12801 West Sunrise Boulevard) at Mall Entry 3 near FYE. Josh Johnson and Ricky Nolasco will be on hand from noon to 1 p.m.
4) Marlins en Miami Store (3701 SW 8th. St.). John Buck and Anibal Sanchez are expected to be present from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Also, starting Friday at 11 p.m. and continuing through the weekend, new Marlins merchandise can be bought at the new ballpark.
"Marlins Insider," hosted by Marlins radio broadcaster Glenn Geffner, returns Saturday on 790-The Ticket with a special three-hour broadcast from the new ballpark. Guests scheduled to join Geffner from noon to 3 p.m. include Ozzie Guillen, John Buck and Anibal Sanchez.
The show will also be streamed live online at Marlins.com.
