Marlins second baseman Omar Infante continued his hot start to the season with a solo shot in the bottom of the second inning in Miami’s 5-4 victory over the Astros on Sunday. More importantly, the homer finally brought to life that brightly colored, monstrous, acid-trip-inspired thing in left center field of Marlins Park. This was the fourth game played in the new stadium since the season started, but Infante’s blast was the first Marlins home run.
The animated “sculpture” has obviously been the most discussed aspect of the club’s new home. But with the place getting the reputation of being a pitchers’ park, perhaps we won’t get to see the thing in action very often — a good thing, depending on how you feel. All I know is not to look directly in the middle or you’ll turn to stone.Google+
