Did you know?

As we travel from one Major League Baseball stadium to the next, we are really enjoying how each stadium is completely different and has its own character, history, and architecture. Here are a few of the unusual facts about Marlins Park that we found especially interesting.

Facts Unique to
Marlins Park


  • Special art projects were selected by Miami-Dade County’s Art in Public Places program to be displayed at Marlins Park. Among them are “Column Illumination,” “Orange Bowl Tribute,” “Plaza Walkways,” and “Home Run Sculpture”.


  • Capacity: 37,442 fans
  • Mascot:
    Billy The Marlin
  • Stadium opened April 4, 2012

The Bobblehead Museum

The Bobblehead Museum display on the Promenade Level is located across from Sections 14/15. It features a collection of current and former Marlins player bobbleheads, as well as current and past baseball players, mascots and broadcasters from all MLB teams. Displaying up to 700 bobbleheads at any time, the entire structure moves ever so slightly, causing the heads to continuously bobble.

Our Reflections on the Game

Advice and reflections from the Glanville Team

Thoughts from James

For sure Marlins Park is my number one stadium!!! I really liked the Marlins water show in center field with many colors. This stadium is indoors, and air conditioned, which for Miami is a must. It didn’t feel like you were inside as crazy as that sounds. The seats are great and there are big escalators that get the crowd up and into the stadium. We didn’t have to wait in lines, and it was easy to see the game and get around the park. They also have cheerleaders/dancers that come out in different costumes and keep the crowd entertained between innings. I think this park is my number one because it was comfortable to watch baseball in, and that’s what we were doing ALL summer! We also had friends in Miami Carolann and Larry. They are BIG Marlins fans and that made it really fun.James

Christie’s Thoughts

For an indoor park, Marlins did it right! This stadium is newer and very comfortable. Lots of food courts and the Cuban food was really yummy. Fun to get an international flair to American baseball. No, we didn’t have hotdogs! Our friends from Miami, Carolann and Larry, joined us for the game, so that added to our enjoyment. You gotta love the air conditioning!!! While cheerleaders are not typical for baseball, the marlins group were fun! Very entertaining and they added to the entire experience. We never waited in lines for anything – getting in, out, bathrooms, or food. Marlins Park will be in the top 5!Christie
