The “Original” Miami Marlins

Mar 27, 2014

03/27/14 - Thursday's Topical Currents looks at the history of the “Triple A” minor league baseball team named the Miami Marlins. Their home was the friendly confines of the old Miami Stadium from 1956 through 1960. There were colorful characters involved . . . including maverick promoter Bill Veeck, Manager Pepper Martin, even ageless pitching wonder, Satchel Paige.  Our guest is Sam Zygner, author of “The Forgotten Marlins: A Tribute to the 1956-1960 Original Miami Marlins.” Also, Linda Gasenheimer celebrates National Paella month. That’s Topical Currents . . . Thursday at 1pm.
