If you have ever been to Marlins Park in Miami, you have certainly seen this ugly ass sculpture in centerfield. It looks like colors and shapes threw up on a mound of shit. According to the Miami Herald, Derek Jeter (new Marlins owner) wants this thing gone but its not that easy. The Harold says “If Derek Jeter wants to rid Marlins Park of its $2.5 million home-run sculpture, a top county official says he first needs artist Red Grooms’ approval to move the government-owned installation. And Grooms says he wants his artwork to remain right there behind center field.”
“What I would like is for it to stay there,” Grooms said Tuesday night from his New York home. “I wish it would just stay there and be hit in the bean with baseballs.” Whatever that means. Keep your hipster acid trippy art in your own ballpark buddy.
At the end of the day, it looks like it will be a pissing contest. This is far from the worse thing at this stadium though. First off, it is built smack dead in the middle of the ghetto with the freeway inches from the building. To get into the parking facility you have to drive through some pretty sketchy areas and then like a UFO a giant building appears. Not to mention there is a nightclub in left field where sometimes there are more people in there than in the ballpark itself. The night club is a sub division of the famous South Beach night club, the Clevelander.
Maybe Jeter can start small and get rid of the terrible neon green paint everywhere.
