The Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp, Double-A affiliate of the Miami Marlins, will play a game dressed as inimitable and iconic Crockett and Tubbs (well, more Crockett than Tubbs). In a promotional schedule that includes such gems as World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail (Sauce) Party, Ramen Noodle Night, and the hilarious “Florida Man” Night, Vice Night stands out.
Jacksonville is a 350 miles north of Miami, and culturally more similar to Georgia than Miami. Nonetheless, the team will wear jerseys that emulate the open white jacket worn by Sonny Crockett on Miami Vice—which, for you youngsters out there, was a TV show starring Don Johnson and Philip Michael Thomas that aired from 1984 to 1989, not the 2006 movie with Colin Farrel and Jamie Foxx. The team’s colors and primary logo for the evening are pulled from the show’s logo.
The jerseys will be auctioned off during the Vice Night game, which takes place May 11.
