TEAMS: Miami Marlins

Via Sportess of Blogitude:

Last week, I made mention of how a webcam was set up to document the progress as the Miami Marlins construct their new ballpark, conveniently named Marlins Park. The screen grabs culled from the webcam were mostly related to the nightmare fuel monstrosity that will be activated after every Marlins home run, but on Thursday, Juan C. Rodriguez, the Marlins beat writer for the South Florida Sun-Sentineltweeted some photos from other vantage points featuring other unique aspects of soon-to-be-completed ballpark, the most fascinating of which feature the progress on the aquariums that will be on full display behind home plate:

Incredible. And remember, the aquariums were constructed using durable fiberglass, so the fishies and other assorted aquatic life that will make these new aquariums their homes will be nice and safe every time a foul ball comes screaming back and smashes into them. Except for the violent reverberations that will undoubtedly occur whenever a ball collides with said durable fiberglass. Yeah.
