Put away the hammer and chisel, there is a way to have your name etched in the Marlins new ballpark and it is perfectly legal.
On opening day Mikey Lowell was presented with the first paving brick with his name, and I think, service time on it. (Paving bricks are different than construction bricks. I could go into detail about size, water absorption and compression strength, but who really cares about that?)
Anyways, back to the story.
The Marlins Community Foundation Paver Program allows Marlins fans to become a permanent part of the New Marlins Ballpark through the purchase of individual engraved pavers located in the East Plaza of the New Ballpark in Little Havana. Pavers will be positioned near the entrance of the East Plaza where they will be seen by thousands of visitors throughout the year. Fans will have a chance to commemorate the day they became a Marlins fan, preserve a favorite Marlins moment, or declare loyalty to the Marlins and be a part of history.
Fans can choose the size and style of the paver(s). Fans will receive a 10% discount when purchasing the paver and replica together, additional replica pavers and display cases can be purchased separately. Pavers are available in two sizes; 8x12 and 12x12. Paver pricing ranges from $250 to $400. Fans can visitwww.marlins.com/paver to place an online order or call 1-855-FAN-PVRS (326-7877) for more information.
The first paver was presented to Marlins great Mike Lowell on Marlins Opening Day 2011. It will be the first paver laid in the east plaza of the New Marlins Ballpark. All proceeds will benefit the Marlins Community Foundation...Building a brighter future through education, the arts and baseball.
I would buy GameFish one but she already has the restraining order set at 1,500 miles and if it goes much further I will be living in Hawaii. Come to think about it.... Hey, GameFish, what do you want written on your brick?
