Miami-Dade county has voted in favor of a retractable roof stadium for the Marlins. This has been a very long process for both sides, so it is nice to see them pass this very large first hurdle. The stadium is expected to be ready by 2012, meaning construction would start sometime this year. With Hanley Ramirez, Cameron Maybin, and other young prospects under the teams control, the Miami Marlins will have a solid core of talent entering their new stadium.
