Out and About in Southwest Broward County

Farewell Florida Marlins - Hello Miami Marlins

Farewell Florida Marlins - Hello Miami Marlins

On September 28th, 2011, the lights dimmed as the Florida Marlins played their final game of this season. It was also their last game ever in Sun Life Stadium, and their last game ever known as the Florida Marlins.

Next year they will open the season in their brand new Marlins Ballpark, and will forever be known as the "Miami Marlins". They will have their own state - of - the - art retractable roof ballbark, on the site of the former Orange Bowl, a site that is loaded with sports history of years gone by. 

The Florida Marlins lost last nights game to the Washington Nationals, but the ceremony that followed was filled with memories of past victories, and stand out moments. Many former Marlins attended, as well as their new manager Ozzie Guillen. This is a very exciting time for this team, and Ozzie is an exciting pick as their new manager.

 

 

 

 

Game

The current Sun Life Stadium is home to the Miami Dolphins, and the Miami Hurricanes. It is located in Miami Dade County, right near the county line and only minutes to Broward County. The new stadium will be more of a drive from Broward County, but from what the buzz is, the ballpark will be worth the trip. With the retractable roof, we won't have to deal with any more rain delays, or sweltering hot day games.

The Florida Marlins played their inaugural game on April 5th, 1993 at Joe Robbie Stadium. (Currently known as Sun Life Stadium)  This young team went on to win their first World Series in 1997, and then again in 2003. 

 

 

 

I remember taking my then young son to see so many Marlins games, and we even had his 8th Birthday PartyBilly at the stadium during a game. Yesterday my son, now 24 works in the media and had the priviledge of being on the field pre-game, and staying for the festivities.

My feelings are bittersweet, but I look forward to cheering on the "Miami Marlins" and seeing many exciting games at the new Miami Marlins Ballpark! South Florida has a lot of great baseball to look forward to!
