It's a water fountain? I couldn't force myself to look at it long enough to figure that out.


It is supoosed to go off after a Marlin HR. There are some moving marlins, lights and a water cannon. Basically think off the classiest decoration you could put in a stadium and it is the opposite.

It doesn't seem like it will get much use then, but yes it's hideous

Looks like a game on The Price is Right.

I think it's funny that the hideous bright green all over the park is the same color as the Seahawks jerseys that were voted the ugliest jerseys of all time by ESPN.

Also I think the whole new franchise direction thing seems a bit disrespectful to baseball. Bright colors, ugly fountains, pools in the outfield, fish tank behind home plate, "champagne" chandelier, and carnival girls escorting the players out. I wish they'd just play baseball. But I guess when no fans show up to the games you have to distract people from the baseball.

The plus side of the lime green walls, they can do some crazy CGI during their broadcasts. Would be interesting to see if they use it for Advertising as the people at home can see the ads, but not anyone at the field itself.

Yep, I read somewhere that Marlins officials figured it would only be opened about 11 games this yr.

I find the whole thing hideous also but Miami has a huge Latin (and especially Cuban) population. It's possible that this appeals to part of that demographic.
