    Samson sounds less than thrilled about the name change:

    "We got a memo to say that the Marlins now play in LandShark Stadium," Marlins president David Samson said. "So you are looking live at LandShark Stadium. So, we have to change all of our ads. We have to change all of our signage. We have to change all of our stationery."
    The marlins have always hated Landshark Stadium. The fact that it is having a name change during the middle of the season. Isn't going to help them change their mind.

    Does that mean they're going to play "Fins" after every game at the Stadium?

    Trivia question time, the song where "Landshark" originates from, what city is mentioned?

    Interestingly enough, Landshark is brewed by Budweiser! So that is two stadiums now that Bud products have their name on, but not "Budweiser" outright like Coors or Miller.

    You can see the new LandShark Stadium logo on the scoreboard. Interesting how they put up the Dolphins banners on the right field wall for the introduction ceremony.

    The many names of the Dolphins/Marlins/Canes stadium, in order of appearance. This has got to be some kind of record

    Dolphin Stadium
    Joe Robbie Stadium
    Pro Player Park
    Pro Player Stadium
    Dolphins Stadium
    Dolphin Stadium again
    LandShark Stadium, for eight months until Super Bowl XLIV in 2010
    Dolphin Stadium round 3, or other corporate sponsor

    To borrow a TV term, the stadium in Miami Gardens have offically jumped the shark.

    (audience groans.)

    LandShark Stadium

    The Florida Marlins have announced that Joe Robbie/Pro Player/Dolphins/Dolphin Stadium is now named LandShark Stadium. The team also announced that Chevy Chase will throw out the first pitch in the newly renamed ballpark...



    ...and that fans will be allowed into the game free of charge if they can dupe the ticket taker into accepting a candy-gram, flower delivery or Western Union telegram.

Still, that kind of thing has been known to curse teams before (I'm thinking of the Chief Nocahoma teepee at Fulton County Stadium). I didn't notice it in 2003.

    Now that you mention it, I could have sworn during the 2003 World Series (but not the NLDS or NLCS), they actually removed that section of the batter's eye for seating. But perhaps I just imagined that.....

    The second group is from both the Herald and the Sun-Sentinel, and shows the stadium for the 1988 exhibition between the Orioles and Dodgers. The stadium was still in its football configuration, meaning left field was 272 feet away. There was a temporary 30 foot fence in left to cut down on homeruns, and the diamond was much like an astroturf diamond, with dirt cutouts around the bases instead of full dirt basepaths. None of the field seating that exists now is present in 1988.

    The first picture is rather grainy, but you should be able to make out the layout of the stadium. The second picture shows the short distance to left with the high wall in left. The third is of Tommy Lasorda and Dolphins owner Joe Robbie.

    As promised, a few newspaper scans from both the 1988 and 1991 exhibition series.

    The first batch are from the 1991 exhibition series with the Orioles and Yankees, all from the Sun-Sentinel. The first shot shows the empty stadium prior to the game. As you can tell from greater detail in sflnyc's pictures, this is close, but not exactly the same, as today's Dolphin Stadium's layout.

    The second shows the Orioles running off the field in front of a 67,000 plus sellout crowd. The third shows Yankees catcher Jim Leyritz trying to catch a ball at the dugout steps.
