    If you're worried about a ball damaging the tank, that can't happen. They already tested it. They had a player stand directly in front and throw as hard as he could and it didn't even come close to damaging the thing.

    Not that it could, anyway. As they said during last night's game, there is a plastic wall, then a space between, THEN the tank.

    The foreground image aside, it looks like concerns about the home run display being in the batter's eye are overblown.

    It looks like they deliberately made sure that the home run display fell outside of the edge of the circle around the pitching mound.

    a former florida marlins pitcher said
    that a player wearing the maimi marlins new orange jersey with the orange hat looks like
    a gatorade bottle


    WOW imagine if he had on the orange hat and orange shoe

    Marlins wearing their Orange hats and batting helmets tonight.

    The bugs are out tonight! The park looks good on tv, but I don't know if I could stare at those green walls all saeason.
    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time.

    I wonder if the construction webcam's days are numbered, now that the stadium is complete...

    NOT complete yet
    the owner said that after wednesday game
    they have 8 more days to get everything right before the
    very 1st series against the astros

    the webcam is still working

    and looks like the home run thing or at least the back base is going to get
    another color BLACK or maybe NOT
    they will know more after the first game
    they are thinking about adding about 3 feet or more of black
    to the back base as part of the batter's eye

    I was confused by your post so I checked the Marlins' schedule. A one-game series? I've never seen that in baseball.
    Using a stolen chant from Boston Celtics fans whenever an L.A. team is playing up there just reeks of inferiority complex.

    If hitting a baseball is the toughest thing to do in sports, then pitching must be the easiest thing to do in sports.

    So even though Opening Day is tomorrow, the stadium STILL isn't done yet?

    (Besides the batter's eye thing, what could they possibly have left to do? Didn't Samson always keep saying the construction was on schedule? )

    the stadium is done, no more constructions
    just tests
    like that home run thing
    can the ballpark hold 37k people and not run out of food,beer,etc
    sound system,parking issues,egrees, when to open/close the roof (temp wise not rain)
    WIND TEST with the panels open
    will the A/C hold the temp to 75 degree with 37k people in the ballpark, and so on

    the roof got struck and did not close for the first yankees game,
    they found a valve problem and fix it=works fine now
    thinks like that.

    citi-field was finish on time in 2009 and here we are in 2012 and they are still making changes
    remember when the citi-field homerun apple fail to rise up after back to back homeruns

    I've spoken to two former Marlins who both agree with me that the new uniforms suck.

    Heck, the Blue Jays came around and went back to their old unis...or at least a 95% return to them.
    Man, do I *HATE* the Yankees!!!!!!

    Here is how CitiField had to move their wall in, now how long will it take for the Marlins to realize they were stupid to have built such a big stadium and do something like this:

    Not sure I like that arrangement. Reminds me of the old cookie cutters with the inner and outer walls.

    While I'm tempted to say bring the fences in at Marlins Park to let Mik--err Giancarlo Stanton go at 'em, the other part of me says let a pitchers park be a pitcher's park.
    Marlins' magical, mystical backstop fish! Now starting on the DL for the Toronto Blue Jays!
