A Night at Marlins Park

A Night at Marlins Park

A long weekend trip took me to two sites in south Florida this past weekend.  The first stop was Marlins Park, home of the Miami Marlins.  Marlins Park opening in the spring of 2012.  This retractable roof stadium is located on the previous site of the Orange Bowl.  

Here are a few photos of the facility.  As you can see the roof was open for the game on a breezy and 78 degree night.  The conditions were very comfortable.

The roof in the open position.  A nice park-like area under the roof:

The field during batting practice:

The "concourse" behind the RF upper level seats.  Notice the large AC unit:

The LF concourse. Notice the tracks in the floor.  The tracks are to move the large windows that were open during the game:

The Orange Bowl tribute area:

A pre-game photo:

The park definitely has a South Beach vibe.  The colors are striking but “fit in” to the area.  Overall, a great facility. For a cool seat with a great view, go the the RF upper deck.  The seats are very steep and overlook the field
