Recently we got a glimpse at the new logo for the Miami (neé Florida) Marlins as they prepare to move in to the new state-of-the-art stadium.
But the new logo looks good compared to the new “home run sculpture.”
The video below is a rendering of a “mechanised sculpture that will activate when the team hits a home run,” and will be found beyond the outfield wall in right-centre field of the new Miami Ballpark.
Hideous is one way to describe it. And even if the sculpture is supposed to represent south Florida, it is not resonating with fans. In one local poll, 94 per cent of respondents called it “tacky.”
The sculpture is apparently the brainchild of Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria, who is an art dealer by trade.
