This event was open to the public and I am kind of kicking myself for not making more of an effort to try to attend. This is the first ‘real’ step when it comes to the construction of the Marlins’ new home. Just 32 months from now construction will be done and we will be able to enjoy baseball during the 2012 season in this state-of-the-art baseball stadium.
Here are a few pics from today’s groundbreaking ceremony:
I heard on the local sports radio station, 790 The Ticket, that Charlie Hough and Benito Santiago were on hand to throw out and catch the first ‘official’ pitch today. I am dying to find a picture of that and when I do I will share it with all of you.
