At first I thought this monstrosity would be retractable and would rear its fugly head only when a Marlin hit a homerun. After seeing the actual images and reading the articles, I'm terrified that it is a permanently exposed "sculpture" and will only light up and make sounds when a home run its hit.

Does anyone know if this thing will be kept hidden throughout the games? Or is it permanently visible?

Marlins checklist to gain more fans and avoid having crappy attendance in the future:

New hideous logo: Check
Whining players who hate the team (see Logan Morrison): Check
New stadium that probably shouldn't even be affordable: Check
Weird carnival like structure in the outfield that makes strange noises: Check

Looks like the Marlins are well on their way to being a great franchise.

That huge screen, and home run thingy are going to be major distractions to the hitters. Also why are there huge white poles directly behind the foul poles. Going to be make it incredibly hard to tell whether it is a home run or not. Just really stupid planning.

At first I thought the fish tanks in the walls of the stadiums was overdoing it. They somehow managed to do something even more ridiculous. A good baseball stadium is one that is comfortable, provides good views, has a great atmosphere and most importantly stays true to the game.

You can add all the fancy gizmo's and gadget you want but at the end of the day, you have to make the damn place look like a baseball park not the Las Vegas strip.
