The feature that sticks out the most by far is that ugly green color that they chose to cover the outfield walls with. It by no means, whatsoever, goes along with the predominantly blue seats inside the park. If you look around the stadium, you see blue, blue, some more blue, and then BAM! That hideous green color just jumps out at you and scares you half to death. Why wouldn’t they have gone along with the blue theme from the rest of the park and made the outfield wall blue, or some other color that actually goes along with blue? It makes no sense.
Secondly, what is that big, colorful thing behind the left-center field wall? At first, I had no clue what it was. Then I found a picture that was zoomed in on it and was able to tell what I was looking at. It would appear to be a big “thing” (for lack of a better term) with flamingos, a couple marlins, palm trees, and a bunch of different bright colors. What does this have to do with baseball? Yes, there are a couple of marlins present, but other than that, this is just a big, ugly distraction to everyone watching/playing the game.
One last thing that I would like to rant about is the fact that the new colors of the Miami Marlins are black, orange, yellow, and a teal/blue color. Nowhere inside this new stadium are those colors present. Yes, the seats are blue, but not the same blue that exists in their logo. One would think that when building a new stadium they would have tried to coordinate the colors with the team’s colors. But what do I know? I’m not any kind of “designer.”
All in all, I’m sure this is a very nice stadium, but what were the Marlins thinking when adding certain features to it? Sometimes, all you can do is shake your head.
