And here I am at Marlins Park. My stadium tour for 2013 gets underway in Florida!
I met my first objective during the last weekend of last season, getting to my 29th and 30th teams' home ballparks. Since I started this adventure two decades ago, many teams have built new ballparks, however, meaning I can't yet say that I've seen them all. So, here I am, seeing another Marlins game. I saw them three years ago, when they were playing in a football stadium. Now they are in a ballpark, the newest one in the majors.
A quick overnighter, it's still nice to be down this way. It really is a beautiful ballpark, different in appearance from many of the other new ones, including some of the domed ones I've seen in recent years, and there's nothing retro about it. Add to that some nice and reasonable food items, and I'm all set.
The game itself? Well the starting pitching matchup didn't get me excited.
The team neutral gear is of course on, tho, and now for the game..
