Fans seldom have a voice in teams' decisions. But in building their new ballpark, the Marlins have decided to use least seven fan suggestions.One suggestion they did not use:
Every ballpark has a stadium organist, but these unsung heroes of the stadium experience are often relegated to bland-sounding electric synthesizers. We think it would be awesome to see a real live (and quite loud) pipe organ just above the centerfield wall of the new ballpark. I think this beats almost any centerfield surprise that Loria is thinking of (except maybe the alligators). Sure it may cost a lot to just to keep the thing in tune... but who cares? Awesomeness trumps all in this case, I think.It's not too late to make this happen. I maintain it would be awesome.
At least they'll be serving Cuban coffee at the new ballpark, though.
