The Florida Marlins announced recently that yet another unique feature of their $500 million downtown Miami stadium will be two, custom made aquariums situated behind home plate.
The point that’s being missed in all the discussion, though, is…THAT THE MARLINS ARE BUILDING A NEW STADIUM AT ALL. Unless it has only 4,000 seats, I can’t fathom how it’s NOT a colossal waste of money.
I will go to my grave believing that regular-season baseball has no business being played in the state of Florida.
Two fancy aquariums aren’t going to change that. Add a killer whale show and some sea lions or penquins and charge a separate admission to see them…then maybe it will be a worthwhile endeavor.
