Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig offered a one-word review of the Miami Marlins' new ballpark.
His word: Wow. The critique came 90 minutes before the first pitch of the first game Wednesday in the Marlins' season opener against the World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals.
Selig lobbied for years in support of team owner Jeffrey Loria's campaign for the ballpark. There was considerable local opposition to the $634 million project, which was financed primarily with tax money, but Selig predicted critics will eventually be swayed.
Two other teams still seek new homes - the Tampa Bay Rays and Oakland A's.
