Visiting the Amazing New Marlin's Park in Miami, Florida

During my visit to Miami Florida in June 2015, I had the pleasure of attending a baseball game at the Marlins new stadium.  This is a really new stadium that just opened in the spring of 2012.  The Marlins were playing the New York Yankees that night and it was a sold-out game.  I'm a Yankees fan so I was a little disappointed when they were losing eight to nothing in the first inning.  I know it's team can't win every game but it's not really much fun to watch once one team is winning or losing by that much from the very beginning.                                    

.  I thought the new stadium was absolutely beautiful.   It has a capacity of nearly 37,000 people and  has a retractable roof which many people feel has increased attendance to the games tremendously.   I love how you can see the skyline through the windows and the home run Marlin decoration that goes into action when the team scores a home run.  You can see a video of it in action here on YoutubeHome run .  Some people see it as over the top or cheesy.  I thought it was fun and I loved the added color to the stadium.

I usually try and photograph the players, but I was busy catching up with a friend I hadn't seen in years.  My favorite player was not playing in this game since the National League doesn't allow designated hitters.  Yes, I'm an Alex Rodriguez fan and I hope not too many of you stop reading this post here :)
Wandering and searching island girl-1-13We had great seats!

Wandering and searching island girl-1-13I would ask you to caption what the group of guys was saying in the row behind us in the photo below.  The score was 8-0 in the first inning and they were not happy about that being Yankees' fans as well.  I want to keep my blog family friendly though ;)
Wandering and searching island girl-1-13I'm not terribly pleased (at all) with this photo of the Miami cityscape, but I thought it was gorgeous with all the different colors and especially the red building seen on on the left.
Wandering and searching island girl-1-66Thanks for your visit.  I would  like to hear which baseball stadiums you have visited and are your favorite.  Have a great week.
