MILWAUKEE -- It will be a real throwback day for the Marlins on Saturday, as the club will sport uniforms from the 1956 Miami Marlins in a tribute to the Negro Leagues.
The Marlins and Milwaukee Brewers will each sport replica uniforms in their 7:10 p.m. ET game at Miller Park.
Miami's uniforms will feature a patch with the No. 29, the number worn by Hall of Fame pitcher Satchel Paige.
The legendary Paige spent three seasons -- 1956-58 -- with the Miami Marlins.
The Marlins of the 1950s were a Triple-A team in the International League. They played at Marlins Stadium, which later became a Spring Training home of the Baltimore Orioles.
The Brewers will wear reproductions of uniforms worn by the 1923 Milwaukee Bears, a member of the Negro National League.
