Marlins Park Featured a Rain Delay on Opening Day Despite Retractable Roof

Atlanta Braves v Miami Marlins

Opening Day, if you’re a baseball day, is like a holiday on the calendar. Either way, this is an Opening Day story that will be hard to top. The Marlins/Braves game in Miami featured a rain delay. No big deal, right? It rains all the time in Florida. Well … the team has a retractable roof over Marlins Park.

And it didn’t really get the job done.

How could this situation get worse?

Yep. The Marlins don’t even have a tarp. (Or apparently access to the local doppler radar.)

Reminder: Marlins Park cost about $650 million, much of the money coming from taxpayers.

All told it looked like the delay took about 20 minutes total.
