Exclusive: Miami's New Marlins Park
Marlins Park was built on the former site of the iconic Orange Bowl in Little Havana and is visible from highways across the city.
The new stadium debuted on April 4, 2012, when the Marlins kicked off the Major League Baseball season in a game against the visiting St. Louis Cardinals.
South Beach's iconic Clevelander bar set up shop behind left field, where fans sip cocktails while watching the game.
In true South Beach style, some fans show off their bikini bods in the Clevelander's pool during the game. After-parties keep going as late as 3 am.
A 450-gallon saltwater aquarium puts a bit of the ocean behind home plate (shown near the bottom of this photo). The shatterproof glass won't be damaged by wild pitches or foul balls.
The bobblehead museum in the stadium's concourse is home to big-headed figures modeled after 588 past and present baseball stars.
When the Marlins knock one out of the park, left field's home run feature comes to life with rolling waves, jumping marlins and flapping flamingos.
Gourmet food options abound, but some fans stay true to the spirit of the game by munching on hot dogs and old-fashioned pretzels. Loaded with ketchup and mustard, of course. Smartphone owners can order from the convenience of their seats using the free At Bat app.
