      True, they've already had games in the stadium, but construction still isn't completely done.

          That has happenned already, no need for rain, heat and humidity will have the roof over the place with the A/C cranking...
          This weekend is supossed to be very rainy here in S.Fla I will experience the roof sunday for the Diamondbacks game.

          Remember too that the roof can be moved in the middle of a game too, any day they please..Under 10 minutes does the trick !!! :cap:

                        Whom ever wants to $tep up to the plate for the naming rights, more power to them.

                        Marlins Park has to be the "Darling" of the MLB.

                            The Marlins president also blamed April's rainy weather for the difficulties with the grass, as the stadium roof was closed more than expected last month. The team may have to replace all the grass on the field before too long.

                            "I would say the sod had as difficult an April as the team did," Samson told the Herald. He says the team remains confident it can keep grass alive in the retractable roof stadium.

                            But if that fails, it seems like the team can afford to replace the sod every once in a while. Through 11 home games, the team is averaging attendance of 30,681, up 61 percent from 2011, when the team averaged attendance of 19,007. Their attendance numbers will likely improve when school gets out, as usually happens every season throughout MLB.

                            And unlike their deal at Sun Life Stadium, where the team split gate proceeds with the Dolphins (the stadium's owners), the Marlins get to keep all the gate at Marlins Park. They'll need the dough if the outfield grass keeps dying.

                              In 2011 they averaged 19.000 fans at Timbaktu ????

                              That is padded up and down and from side to side !!!!

                              There is NO way the sum of all, divided by the home stands it could have averaged that many people..No way Jose.

                                Maybe average of tickets SOLD, but that many people at that Hole with Walls that Robie built ??

                                Never.
