    I dont care about detractors and or jealouzy...Marlins Park its just unreal..I am sure they will be picking up lots more in revenue when the naming rights are sold...I hear in circles Apple might be up to it !!!!!

    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:

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

    The stadium will be completed on time, but the restaurants and shops that are planned to surround it probably won't....

    It's more than half finished and supposedly under budget.

    Looking at a picture on their Facebook page, taken in March, it looks like the roof was about 50% done. I think they will have no problem being finished on time.

    I also saw the renderings for the first time. It looks like it's going to be a beautiful stadium.

    I wonder if they will close the roof only when it rains or when it's really hot and humid out too.

    We've been very lucky this hurricane season (the six month of June through November) with no major storms affecting Florida so far. Only a month and a half left and the threat usually tapers off considerably by the end of October (Hurricane Wilma in October 2005 was a notable exception, in a very active year of storms). In Florida, December, January, February and March are typically the driest and coolest months of the year - very good for finishing construction and putting in the grass. Knock wood, but weatherwise we're looking pretty good.

    What kind of line is this? Is it easy for tourists to use? Do you have a link to its website?

    MDT can no longer provide shuttle service from the station to the stadium (like they used to for games at the Orange Bowl) due to the ridiculous FTA ruling that local transit agencies can't provide shuttle service (has to be a private company)
    That is very odd. What possible reason could there be for a ruling like that?
