Marlins News: Marlins Park Officials Forget To Close Roof, Rain Delay Ensues

The Miami Marlins have a useful retractible roof at Marlins Park which usually allows them to escape the bipolar weather of the South Beach area. However, that wasn't the case during the team's 2-1 Opening Day loss to the Atlanta Braves.

Courtesy of Bleacher Report:

Apparent miscommunication amongst staffers at Marlins Park led to a rain delay -- despite the fact that the team has a perfectly good $50 million retractable roof. The delay was eventually curtailed by closing the roof, but not before Marlins president David Samson got a quip in.
