I don't know.  It's been so long since I've watched network tv, that I honestly couldn't tell you.

While looking for Hank Aaron in Braves pinstripes to put in the "right team, wrong uniform thread", I came across a trio of Hall-of-Famers who were also Braves at the time in some capacity, but qualified more so for this thread:

 

Orlando Cepeda

Hoyt Wilhelm

And "Pitching Coach/Pitcher" Satchel Paige

Probably, but it may the most famous example.

and he was still recognized by the organization as a Marlins Alumni. He even showed up wearing a Marlins jersey at the final Dolphin Stadium game.

My favorite thing about Piazza on the Marlins is that while his time with the Marlins only amounted to .245% of his career plate appearances, he did pick up 12.5% of his career triples!

A two-fer. 

 

King Felix batting and wearing the road greys at HOME against the Marlins. 

 

Three Miami / Dolphins Stadium games got relocated due to a U2 concert in 2011. Another reason they needed their own park- they couldn't even keep the dates they needed when the Dolphins wanted them out.

Some of us still yearn for this time of their fandom.

No reason why they wouldn't recognize him. He did play here. It's not like he passed through here on a waiver claim or in a three way trade or something odd like that.
