The Miami Marlins will enter the 2012 season with a very dynamic lineup, featuring Jose Reyes at the top of the order, Emilio Bonifacio continuing the bullet train behind him, Hanley Ramirez capping it at the three spot, followed by the powerful bat of Mike Stanton, the lefty bat of Logan Morrison, Gaby Sanchez, John Buck, and Omar Infante.

The Marlins will also feature a very solid rotation spearheaded by Josh Johnson, Mark Buehrle, Anibal Sanchez, and Ricky Nolasco. However, the question is whether their new ballpark in Miami will be a hitters haven, pitchers paradise, or somewhere in between. 

The new free agents all asked whether the same question and team president David Samson said to the media contingent: “We don’t know, some days I come here and it looks tiny. Other days I come here and it looks giant, there’s no way you’ll know until the players play.”

The roof is a factor, various ballparks in baseball have roofs and the wind and humidity all play a role in how far the ball travels.

I’ve racked together ten different ballparks and stadiums to compare the dimensions of the new Marlins ballpark including Sun Life Stadium. 

The choices made were based off the notoriety of the ballpark, its similarity of dimensions or just out of curiosity.
