    I miss the Vet....

    Hell yeah I'd prefer some elbow room. Not to mention nothing beats sitting behind the dugout with a $5 uppder deck ticket.

    If you want to go to the carnival, go to the carnival.

    The Senators left Washington while their new ballpark was under construction in 1960.

    I don't think the Marlins are leaving Miami, but I'm just sayin.

    As a sports stadium, it is plenty historic. If I am correct, it is the only stadium to be the main venue of two different Olympic games.

    But strictly as a baseball stadium, it was only around for 4 years. As you point out, it did have the fortune of having the largest ever World Series attendance (thanks to its massive size), but other than that, there's not much to say about the Coliseum other than it was a really, really bad venue for baseball.

    It was the "Plan 9 from Outer Space" of baseball stadiums. The reason it was still memorable rested in its hideousness. But no one is going to confuse the Coliseum's baseball legacy with that of Old Yankee Stadium, Ebbets Field, Forbes Field, etc., or for that matter, its nearly baseball-perfect successor Dodger Stadium.
    It was only used because its still around and usable. If it wasn't still around or if it was falling apart no one would care. You don't see people crying I wish Forbes or ebbets was still around so we could play there. You didn't see the Eagles ever go back to JFK to play.

    I go there to watch the game, not the crowd. I also like a well manicured baseball field. (before the Dolphins chop it up) I can stare at a baseball field for hours on end, even if nobody else is in the park. And the best part about JRS is that you can sit where ever you want.

    How so? There is zero chance that Sun Life will ever be needed for baseball. There are no teams to play there. The Marlins obviously don't need it. No one else will either. And since it's been proven that the stadium sucks for baseball...well, to actually PUT a baseball team in there would be the foolish thing.
