MIAMI -

An Atlanta Braves fan wore a controversial jersey to Marlins Park on Monday.

The Braves fan was seen on Fox Sports Florida wearing a John Rocker #49 throwback jersey.

The controversial closer pitched for the Braves in the mid-90s.

He got into trouble after controversial remarks he made about taking the subway in New York City.

Rocker's remarks published in December of 1999 offended several groups.

He later apologized.
