[edit] History, Comments, Contributions

The Florida Marlins' 1997 season started off with the team trying to improve on their record from 1996, when they flirted with .500 for the first time in their history, finishing with a record of 80-82, in 3rd place in the National League East. Their manager was Jim Leyland. They played home games at Pro Player Stadium. They finished with a record of 92-70, winning the NL Wild Card. The team then pulled off arguably the greatest upset in baseball history by getting through the National League playoffs and winning the World Series over the Cleveland Indians.
