Marlins open series with Nationals

MIAMI — Major League Baseball is celebrating Jackie Robinson Day on Monday, and at Marlins Park players from both teams will all be wearing No. 42 in honor of the man who broke the game’s color barrier.

As part of the pregame ceremonies, Norman Berman, a Palm Beach County resident, will throw out the ceremonial first pitch. Berman was a ball boy for the Brooklyn Dodgers when Robinson played.

The Marlins on Monday open a three-game set with the Nationals at Marlins Park. Wade LeBlanc gets the starting nod for Miami, while Jordan Zimmermann will pitch for the Nationals.
