Florida Marlins - Sports in Miami

The Florida Marlins are Miami's Major League Baseball team and have never won first place in their division. But thanks to exciting and unpredictable World Series wins in 1997 and again in 2003 as a wild card winner, Miamians have one again reconnected with America's favorite pastime. This renewed interest in professional baseball has led to the building of a brand new Marlins ballpark in Miami and set to open to the public in 2012. Going to a Florida Marlins game is a great way to spend a lazy afternoon in Miami. You can get some great food, frozen sangrias, and tickets prices are very reasonable.

The baseball season runs from April until October of every year. Miami summers can be very hot and humid, so if you can't handle the weather opt for games in April and May or on cooler days.

The Florida Marlins currently play their home games in the Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens as they wait to relocate to their new abode in Little Havana, Miami in 2012. Their team uniform colors are black, teal, silver, and white. To get tickets to a game, check the Florida Marlins website, Ticketmaster or StubHub which links directly from the Marlins' website.
