Dolphin Stadium in football configuration. The Dolphins' former kicker Olindo Mare used to complain about having to kick on the dirt, but now he's on the rug in New Orleans and he's not doing much better. The seats down the first base line and the Marlins' bullpen stay for football games, but the end zone cuts into the same seats on the third-base line so these come out for football. All Marlins paraphernalia is covered up for football, unlike for baseball, when the Ring of Fame is open for all to see. The left field seats retract, and the infield dirt is covered up after baseball season ends.
After baseball season, the infield dirt is covered up, they paint the field all fancy for the Dolphins and they cut the grass to match. Notice though how much dead space is left behind the benches in football configuration - the stadium is much wider than it needs to be, which Joe Robbie did on purpose with the thought of a future baseball team in mind.
