Marlins Park has a number of unique features around the ballpark. Not only does the ballpark feature a retractable roof, but retractable outfield glass panels. Located behind left field, these panels, six combined at 240 feet long and 60 feet high, open or close in eight minutes and provide a panoramic view of the downtown Miami skyline. Behind the outfield fence in left-centerfield is one of the most unique homerun features in baseball. The colorful, $2.5 million, 75 feet tall structure features moving waves along the bottom and spins marlins, seagulls and flamingos anytime a Marlins player hits a homerun. Marlins Park will be the second ballpark in baseball to feature a pool. The Marlins teamed up with a South Beach icon, the Clevelander, to bring a party atmosphere to the ballpark. Located on the field level next to the Marlins bullpen, this private seating area will seat 240 fans, providing classic Clevelander food and entertainment next to the pool.
One of the most unique features in any ballpark is located directly behind home plate. On both sides of the backstop are twin 450 gallon saltwater aquariums containing up to 50 fish. Bulletproof glass prevents the aquariums from shattering in the event a foul ball strikes one of them. The main HD video/scoreboard is 101 feet wide by 51 feet high above the right-centerfield stands. Another 100 feet wide display within the left field wall will display scores and stats from games throughout MLB. The ballpark will have many amenities including a Taste of Miami food court including three restaurants, Latin American Grill, Pap Llega Y Pon and Don Camaron. Although the Marlins have won two World Series since their inception in 1993, they hope to bring World Championship baseball back to South Florida.
