Fantasy Baseball Dugout:
MARLINS BALLPARK is less than two miles from downtown Miami on the site of the old Orange Bowl.
The newly named Miami Marlins will begin play in their new ballpark for the 2012 season. Seats will be some of the closest to the field in all of MLB so be alert. It will always be 75 degrees and sunny during every game in the new park thanks to the retractable roof that will keep out the hot Florida sun and stop the terrential rains in the area. The cozy park will seat 37,000 with 21,500 in the lower section and only 4700 in the outfield. The Marlins will occupy the third base dugout.
In left field, the Taste of Miami will feature local cuisine. Guests who aren’t afraid to show a little flesh in front of 37,000 friends will be able to take a dip in The Clevelander’s (formerly known as La Playa) swimming pool just beyond the outfield fence. The Clevelander, a South Beach experience hotel, will feature a bar and private suites.

Perhaps Jose Reyes already has received assurances from Hanley Ramirez he would be welcomed to the Miami Marlins, specifically to the shortstop position, with enthusiasm. If Reyes still is looking for Ramirez to extend him that support, it’s not likely to happen Tuesday.
