Miami Weather at Marlins Park

Sun Life Stadium is a football stadium first, and the home of the Florida Marlins second. It is one of only a few multi-sport facilities left in MLB. To accommodate MLB, the stadium underwent renovations in 1999, which included retractable seating on the north side, new dugouts, 660 additional lights for night play and an electric disappearing pitcher's mound. The Marlins are planning to move to a new park in 2012 or 2013.
When configured for baseball, the park favors hitters with short 361-foot power alleys and a 330 foot left field corner. The heavy Miami air can hold balls back on muggier days, but on most evenings, the balls are lively. What keep the Marlins in the middle of the pack offensively is the deep centerfield wall, high wall in left field, and a fairly deep right-center field gap.
As a hitter’s ballpark, ESPN ranks Sun Life Stadium #10. In 2010, Sun Life Stadium ranked #15 in total runs scored per game for both teams with 9.01. Coors Field gave up the most runs per game at 10.59.
