The last time the Marlins won a World Series was in 2003. The Fish hope bringing back a member from that team, will lead them to their next World Title.

That member is former Marlins catcher Mike Redmond, who sources say has been named the next Miami Marlins manager. Redmond beat out other candidates such as MLB Network Analyst, and former MLB manager Larry Bowa.

Redmond has some managerial experience, as he coached teams in the Toronto Blue Jays farm system in 2011 and 2012.

Redmond was Ivan “Pudge” Rodriguez’s backup in 2003 when the Marlins last won a World Series, and spent seven seasons with the Marlins.
