Omar Infante homers, activates Marlins Park's 'home run feature'
For the first time, a Marlins player has homered in Marlins Park. And it's Omar Infante.

It was actually Infante's fourth homer of the young season, and he hasn't even hit more than eight homers in a season since 2005.
More importantly, however, was the fact that with the Marlins' first home homer of the season, we got to see the new home run feature in action for the first time. And thanks to Fish Bytes, we have video:
