Minus All The Tacky Stuff, The New Marlins Stadium Looks Pretty Awesome

Miami Ballpark, Miami Marlins

[credit provider=”MLB.tv”]

The Marlins new ballpark doesn’t officially open its doors until they face the defending World Series Champions, St. Louis Cardinals, on Wednesday night. But like most teams, the Marlins wanted to test out their new digs with a dress rehearsal prior to the regular season.So yesterday, the Marlins played a spring training game in their new stadium against the New York Yankees. While the new ballpark will hold 37,000 fans, only 25,000 were allowed in last night.

The new stadium is certainly over-the-top, as things in Miami tend to be. But it is also gorgeous.
