Nothing New Selig speaks Marlins Stadium


Recommended Posts

Also Thursday, Selig reiterated the need for a new stadium for the Florida Marlins. The Marlins want a 38,000-seat ballpark next to the Orange Bowl in downtown Miami, but it's been stalled by funding issues. While the team, the city and Miami-Dade County have pledged $390 million toward construction, there's still a gap of up to $45 million.


The Marlins hoped to be in a new stadium for the 2008 season. The team's series of one-year leases with Dolphins Stadium will expire after the 2010 season.


"They're working very hard. ... They need the new ballpark,'' Selig said. "It's very frustrating. We have two

or three franchises that really are going to have to solve their stadium problems.''




This was said after Selig announced the approval of the new ownership group of the Tampa Bay Devil Rays...once again nuttin new but oh well...
