Batting Practice, First Seat Installed in Florida Marlins’ New Stadium
It appears that construction of the Florida Marlins’ new stadium is still on schedule for a March 1, 2012 opening. For those who missed The Miami Herald article yesterday, Marlins players such as Hanley Ramirez, Mike Stanton, John Buck and Gaby Sanchez took batting practice and the first seat was installed in the new ballpark. The article also mentions that premium seating is selling fast and full season-ticket sales for 2012 already exceeds all season-ticket plans sold for 2011. I, for one, look forward to the day when Miami will have its own stadium and arriving at a ball game will take just 7 minutes rather than making the long commute to Broward County.
