Florida Marlins 2009 Season Guide
Florida Marlins
Spring is in the air and baseball season is here once again. In South Florida, we all have our eyes on Fredi Gonzalez and his Florida Marlins. Is it possible that we’ll revisit the glory years of The Fish when they brought the World Series titles home to Miami in 1997 and 2003? In this guide, we take a look at some of the essential information you’ll need to enjoy Marlins baseball in 2009.

Marlins Essentials

Here are some quick essentials to help you enjoy Marlins baseball this year:

Marlins 2009 Season

This year’s season opens on April 6th with a 3-game series at home against the Washington Nationals. The team’s full 2009 schedule is available online.

If you’re planning to head out for a game, be sure to consult the Dolphin Stadium seating chart before purchasing tickets. If you’re looking to entertain the kids, check out the 2009 promotions schedule to identify games with promotional giveaways and other events. One of our family’s favorite outings is a trip to Dolphin Stadium on a summer Saturday for an evening game followed by a post-game fireworks show.

Getting to Dolphin Stadium

If you haven’t been to Dolphin Stadium in the past, you might be surprised to learn that it’s not located in Miami. The ballpark is actually equidistant from Miami and Fort Lauderdale, located about one mile south of the Broward County line. We offer driving directions from various points in South Florida.

General parking at Dolphin Stadium is $10 for Marlins games. Most gates open two hours prior to starting time, but early birds may access Gates 2 and 5 half an hour before other gates open. Disabled parking is available at Gates A, C, E and G. Here’s an insider tip: TicketsNow offers VIP parking passes for $20 for most Marlins games.

Media Coverage

If you can’t make it out to the ballpark, Marlins home games are available on television on the FSN Florida network. Radio broadcasts are available in Miami on WAXY 790AM.
