The Marlins Home Plate Aquarium Gets Its First Fish
The deal to finance the new Marlins stadium isn't the only thing fishy about the place. The giant aquarium behind home plate has been populated by its first fishy resident. Check out video bellow.
How does it make you feel that this stupid fish will have better seats to every Marlins home game than you? Do fish even understand baseball?
The two giant aquariums constitute perhaps the most unique home plate backstop of any MLB stadium. The right tank measures 34 feet long, while the one to the left measures 24 feet long. Together they hold about 1,150 gallons of water.
In case you're wondering, the tanks are coated with a polycarbonate resin thermoplastic that will ensure no wild balls break the glass causing those 1,150 gallons of water to pour out onto the field.
