Who Would You Want To See Naming Rights Go To For Marlins Park?
Sean Millerick: Bacardi or Carnival always made sense to me back when I used to dream regularly of a big semi-local company charging to the rescue to deliver the franchise to big-budget glory. Naming rights are different from ownership though, although I suspect sale talks could be delaying the unveiling. Years later, with a new stadium built, I have to say Marlins Park has grown on me. My fingers are crossed that stays part of the title, with Marlins Park being the home of Whoever Pays A Lot Field.
David Marcillo: I don’t really care too much about naming rights, I just don’t want it to go to something that’s going to be annoying or embarrassing to say. The Marlins are already an embarrassing enough team sometimes, the last thing we need as fans is to root for a team playing in the “Hanes Harbor” or “Burger King Bowl”.
Seth Moed: Is Pro Player still around as a company? If so, I’d like that as the new name since I still call the now “Hard Rock Stadium” Pro Player all the time. It would be nice to make that reference and still be accurate about a sports venue in Miami.
Eric Quinones: I don’t care much of who gets naming rights for Marlins Park. I just hope it’s a decent name and nothing embarrassing.
And on that inspiring note, we’ll close the discussion. Find some time to follow the Fish this weekend, and we’ll have the answers to another batch of questions next week.
