Nationals serenaded with fart noises during B.P. at Marlins Park (video)

In what may be an unprecedented (and sophomorically delightful) act of music-based psychological warfare, the wacky wisenheimers in charge of the P.A. system at Marlins Park — the already-carnival-like home of the Miami Marlins — pumped in what sounded like fart noises as the Washington Nationals conducted their batting practice session prior to Wednesday’s game....Read More...

Marcell Ozuna’s Revenge

Nearly a month ago the Marlins made the somewhat curious decision to send Marcell Ozuna down to Triple-A.

Marlins Park proves a challenge for home run hitters

MIAMI (AP) The colorful home-run sculpture in Marlins Park doesn't get much use because the stadium is the toughest in the majors to hit a homer. Giancarlo Stanton, Miami's $325 million slugger, has long contended the park doesn't play fair because homers are too hard to hit. But visiting managers say they find the contrast to bandboxes elsewhere refreshing. The Marlins have thus...

WATCH: John Oliver went after public stadium funding

On this week’s episode of Last Week Tonight, John Oliver thrashed a sports-related topic that really drives us insane – the concept of public funding for stadiums.

Dee Gordon dislocates thumb on dive, replaced on AS team
