The new Marlins ballpark continues to get its finishing touches, including the sodding of the field, which just happens to be taking place Thursday. Courtesy of Juan C. Rodriguez, the Sun Sentinel's Marlins beat writer (definitely click through to see a lot more pictures of the stadium), here is a beautiful shot of the field -- which gives our best idea yet of how the park will look during play:



Also, here is a shot -- again, from Rodriguez -- of the aquarium that's behind home plate. It's not directly behind, instead a bit to the side, closer to the dugout.

What, you can't tell an incomplete stadium is a hitters park by looking at pictures!? Where've  you been?

How the hell do you know it's a hitters park when a game hasn't been played there yet?

great, another hitters park to inflate the homeruns.  the fish tank is cool, something new. but we need more parks designed for pitching, not hitting.

Am I the only one that invisions a foul ball, broken bat or catcher running down a pop up crashing though that sweet fish tank they have?

The Stadium looks nice and i think it will be a hitters park when  the roof is  closed, but come on a fish tank behind home plate looks dumb even for south fla..
