Originally established as the Florida Marlins by business tycoon Wayne Huizenga in 1991, the team played its first season as a member of the Major League Baseball's East Division in 1993. Rene Lachman became the newly formed team's first manager. The Florida Marlins called Sun Life Stadium its home ground for almost the next two decades. The end of the 1990s proved to be an unfortunate period for the team as its performance began to drop. However, following a series of changes in the membership and structure of the team, things started to look up for the Florida Marlins once again. The year 2002 saw the transfer of ownership to Jeffrey Loria who has maintained it to date. In 2011, the team was rebranded as the Miami Marlins and this change in name was accompanied by a shift in their home ground from Sun Life Stadium to Marlins Park.
With regard to winning championship titles, the year 1997 and 2003 proved to be the most fruitful since the team became the ‘World Series Champion' following its qualification to the post-season in both years. One of the players, Livan Hernandez, was also honored as the ‘World Series Most Valued Player' in 1997. Similarly, Josh Beckett was awarded title of ‘MVP' in 2003 while John McKeon was commended as the ‘Manager of the Year'.
