JUPITER -- There are fish in the fish tank.
I never got around to posting this on the blog yesterday, but for those of you who follow me on Twitter I sent out the following video shortly after The Miami Herald was treated to a two-hour private tour of Marlins Park Wednesday by owner Jeffrey Loria and team president David Samson.
As you can see, the big aquariums behind home plate finally have some residents.
Here are two other videos I uploaded from the tour, including what the view of the stadium looks like from field level and what it looks like at the moment inside a stadium suite.
Marlins fans will get their own first look during Saturday's FanFest event at the stadium, scheduled to run from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Samson told us yesterday he expects to have tours of the stadium often, including a look at the clubhouse and other areas where fans usually wouldn't be allowed to go. It just hasn't been setup yet.
Saturday, all players on the 40-man roster and manager Ozzie Guillen will be at FanFest to sign autographs and interact with fans. There will also be a couple town hall sessions in English and Spanish where a mic will get passed around and fans will be able to ask questions.
All in all, expect and exciting event. My advice: get there early. There are only 5,700 parking spaces near the stadium.
