It goes without saying that the revolutionary stadium nestled in Little Havana is as unique as they come. When you attend a game at Marlins Park, there is always much more to do than sit in your seat for three hours and watch a ballgame. That’s obviously the main feature of the trip, but before the day is done there are myriad other attractions one must seek out to truly own the experience.
Since it opened in 2012, Marlins Park has deflected plenty of ridicule from baseball “purists” and, um, haters, for lack of a better word. They’ve said it’s a disgrace to baseball, that it’s tacky, it’s not a traditional baseball stadium that almost all the other MLB teams have constructed to celebrate the game’s rich history (which is an incredibly dumb argument because Miami is a city unlike any other, and the team is one of the youngest in baseball; the Marlins don’t have 120 years of heritage for which to attone.)
Here are five reasons why you should check out Marlins Park in 2015, and see all the beautiful ballpark has to offer.
