Well, not quite. The Phillies did, but the good news for Miami is that the Marlins remain the only Florida team to win the championship, and Pat Burrell became only the second University of Miami alum to win the series. With the Canes, Burrell was named MVP in the 1996 College World Series, and was inducted into the UM hall of fame in February. He's spent his entire MLB career with the Phillies, but will be a free agent next season. Just something to think about, Marlins. Hmmm? Like they have the money.
