Should we play with the roof open more often?

Who else thinks this park looks WAY nicer with the roof open? Honestly, having gone to a bunch of games at Joe Robbie, the weather usually always gets pretty nice and mild with a breeze soon as the sun starts going down. We should honestly always have the roof open for night games, and maybe for afternoon weekend games as well. We can keep it closed for every other game, or of course on days where it's been raining a bunch, and it gets hot and humid. To me, for all the homages the park pays to the fact it resides in Miami, you'd think the most obvious one would be to let us enjoy the weather a little bit. Gives the park a more natural feel, and lightens some of those dark spots in the upper decks.

 

Not to mention, on those weekend games, we can welcome those away teams with what they hate most about playing us. The unbearable heat.

Having sat in Sun Life for many of those Sunday afternoon games, I can say with confidence I would never want to experience that again. I also didn't enjoy the muggy nights that were very common.

 

If it's a night like tonight, sure open it but for the most part -- it should be closed.

I like the idea of the roof being open more but we are in the minority. With all the games I have been to this season, opening night is the only one that I went to that the roof was open for. I have tickets for Wednesdays game, I doubt it'll be open then, but I hope it is.

 

I agree with you though, park looks so much more amazing with the roof open. I'm hoping for more breezy evenings to see it open at least a few more times.

 

And Admin is right about day games, it should ALWAYS be closed during day games.

I agree the park looks way better with the roof open. It should be open more but damn if it isn't muggy almost every night down here.

It all depends on the weather and having lived here my whole life I know they won't have it opened that much. Maybe if the Marlins make the World Series they will open it then in late October. Other than that you'll see an opened roof sprinkled in here and there throughout the season just like tonight.

Last night was unusual, in that heat/humidity was relatively low. Good move opening it up, but keeping the outfield wall closed (to block easterly winds).

 

MS "open" would be a lot hotter than JRS in the same weather conditions, because the air doesn't flow into MS at all.

It was exceptionally comfortable last night for a June game. I personally do not mind the humidity even later in the summer and would choose to have it open for night games-but never for an afternoon game. With the roof open, it is obviously brighter and just feels better.

Maybe they leave it open on clear summer nights and have the A/C blasting-serious utility bills.

Tonight's forecast is similar to last night. Given the fact that we finally won and the players like it open, I predict it will be open again tonight.

Should be a pretty comfortable night even if it is less windy, still a decent breeze.

 

7 PM forecast is 83 going down to 79 by end of game, humidity at 60% at game time with an east breeze around 10mph.

Away teams hate the unbearable heat. You know who else hates it? Home players. And who else? Fans.

 

I'm aware of that. The idea would be that we'd eventually get used to it, and it'd just become a part of playing for a Miami team. As for the fans, come on, if you live in Miami, and you've gone to Dolphins and Marlins games in the past, you should be trained for this.

 

BTW, just came home to catch the start of the game, and I'm pleasantly surprised to see they opened the roof again! Slump buster!
