New Marlins Ballpark, Miami

The Marlins' new park in Little Havana, square on the site of the old Orange Bowl, will be a big departure from the team's old football home. The smallest-capacity park in the major leagues, even the Marlins should be able to keep the park at least looking full to capacity. Despite a very new look, actual baseball dimensions are very similar to the Marlins' old football home, complete with the Bermuda Triangle alley in left, and that probably means the new field will play much like the old: as a fair-to-strong pitcher's park. The park's dimensions were tightened a bit before the 2016 season, which should see offense increase a bit. At present, the fence is 407 feet away in dead center, down from 420 when the park opened, while much of the fence has been lowered from thirteen to less than six feet. The park's unusual southeastern alignment (almost all ballparks face northeast) should have an impact on the prevailing winds, though much of that will be mitigated or redirected by the retractable roof.
