Marlins Park roof open for ESPN telecast vs. Red Sox

So much for indoor baseball in June.

Marlins Park
Marlins Park with the roof open Monday night. The team said the roof would likely be closed all summer because of the heat in South Florida.

The Marlins have opened the retractable roof up for tonight's game against the Red Sox, a surprise move considering the team said the roof would likely be shut until October because of the South Florida heat.

But apparently cooler temperatures -- and ESPN TV cameras -- had a little something to do with it.

The Marlins haven't played with the roof open since April 18th against the Cubs. They are 2-2 this season with the roof open.

Watching the game here in Seattle, its nice to finally be able to watch one. As a baseball fan I love the head-first slide by Stanton but as a Marlin fan realizing how important his shoulder and bat are to the team I cringe at the same time. Gary Sheffield rule: Don't dive!

And just like that they've scored as many in the 1st inning as they've scored the last week it seems.

How bout Salano with the sac fly? Now another RBI. This Colombian kid can play.

Tomorrow sit Hanley and have Solano at 3rd.
