Marlins help celebrate Wrigley with throwbacks

CHICAGO -- As part of the 100th anniversary of Wrigley Field, the Cubs and Marlins on Sunday took part in a throwback uniform day.

The Cubs sported retro 1942 Cubs uniforms, while the Marlins were clad in 1940-inspired Miami Sun Sox gray with black lettering uniforms.

The old Sun Sox were a Minor League affiliate of the Dodgers, who won their league championship in 1950 and '52.

The Marlins, of course, have a bright color scheme with their 2014 regular uniforms. Right fielder Giancarlo Stanton has cleats with red-orange, and on Sunday, he wore a red-orange compression sleeve on his right arm.

Stanton didn't pack a black sleeve, so he had to add his own colors on throwback day.

"They have gray and black, just like the video," Stanton said. "They're all right. They're a little different than ours.

"But it's all right. It's a good cause for 100 years of history and all the memories that are here."
