    stadium needs teal seats. the marlins need to bring back the teal hat also.

    Very nice looking place. I like it because it fits in with the whole Florida feel and it's not another brick cookie cutter.

    Agreed, on both counts. That hat was one of the more unique hats in baseball

    I'd love to see a teal alternate jersey with the new uniforms. I know they won the World Series wearing the black ones, but I'm getting a little tired of the way they seem to be downplaying the teal. For a hat, use that old M alternate logo with a teal bill.

    Soxfan, where did you find those uniform concepts? They're obviously from a while ago since they still show Olsen and Jacobs, traded in the offseason.

    Great video, but all I could think about was how long it took the camera to pan from the beach to the stadium lol.

    Also teal seats don't look that bad at space coast stadium where the marlins were supossed to spring train:

    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 love the overall design, but I'm SO not digging all those huge pillars in the seating bowl.

    The Space Coast Stadium shade of teal was a little too overpowering. A darker one would look better. The Nats finally replaced the teal seats with blue ones a couple years ago.

    Someone had recently posted them on the Marlin's message board on ESPN.com

    Personally I wouldn't mind seeing the teal jersey's and/or caps either because it's unique. I was slightly disappointed when the D'Backs got rid of their purple unis becuase I thought that was unique. I do admit that the sedona red is more fitting for them, but hey they won a world series in purple!

    Anyone else notice how the seats rise up as you go down the line towards the foul poles? There's going to be a monster 2-3 story high wall in those corners:

    Response about the teal seats from Samson:

    "Tyler,

    We actually looked at teal seats, and I assure you that it did not look as good or fit with the architecture.

    Thanks for the e-mail.

    Regards,

    David Samson"

    I bet it's going to be a darker shade of blue in real life. I really didn't like the coloring of Nationals Park at first either, but it looks a lot better in person than it did in the renderings. At least the email doesn't make it sound like they're abandoning teal altogether.

    That might be cool to see the wal go up at an angle!

    It's not all that much different from say Camden Yards,

    or Fenway


    And since the seats never jut out, no views are obstructed.

    Nobody beats Arlington for having a high wall down the line. There's really no way to avoid a mild obstructed view from certain spots in the corners. The way they have it at the new Marlins park should minimize the obstruction. If nothing else, at least it's different than other parks.

    I think it's been stated before but someone needs to e-mail the Marlins pictures of Dodger Stadiums reserved level seats because they look great haven't faded and are always open to the california sun

    I just got the same e-mail from him, and I even included the picture of Dodger Stadium's seats for reference. I really think it's a mistake to go with blue. Fenway green would be better than the blue (the light green color)

    Does Marlins new ballpark really need to have a roof? I mean I am not against it but I dont see why they should waste extra money on it when they dont need one. Does it get really hot in Florida or something?
