A Look Back At The Marlins First World Series Title

By on October 25, 2013 at 4:49 pm

Marlins WinIt was sixteen years ago tomorrow that the then Florida Marlins won their first World Series title at the stadium, which at the time was known as Pro Player.

October 26, 1997 – It was game 7 of the World Series, and the Marlins were coming off of a 4-1 loss to the Cleveland Indians the night before, in a game that was also played at Pro Player Stadium.   67,204 were on hand to see the Marlins tie the game in the bottom of the ninth inning and in the 11th,  a single by Edgar Renteria’s drove in Craig Counsell to win the game by a score of 3-2, giving the Marlins their first World Series title in franchise history.

Louis Hernandez was named the Most Valuable Player, and for the first time in World Series history, the trophy presentation took place out on the field in front of the fans, rather than inside the winning team’s clubhouse.

This game would also mark the last time the Cleveland Indians reached the World Series.

On the same day, the Miami Dolphins were scheduled to play the Chicago Bears at home.  Due to Game 7 of the World Series the Dolphins Game was moved to Monday night, which resulted in a unique Monday night football double header which also featured a rematch of the previous year’s Super Bowl between the Packers and Patriots.
