Miami Marlins outfielder, World Series star Jorge Soler makes Pensacola stop

The sky darkened and the first band of rain was imminent early Tuesday afternoon when Jorge Soler arrived at Blue Wahoos Stadium, greeted by a small contingent of autograph seekers dressed in Atlanta Braves gear.

He signed each request, posed for pictures and flashed a smile, while pushing two large luggage cases on rollers.

Soler was a free agent acquisition during spring training by the Miami Marlins, following his instant-legend status in Atlanta when he was the 2021 World Series MVP in the Braves championship win against the Houston Astros. It zoomed his popularity to another level.

Soler (pronounced So-Lair) extended his fan engagement in Pensacola prior to being in the Blue Wahoos lineup for their weather-delayed, 2-1 victory Tuesday night against the Chattanooga Lookouts.
