Pipe Organ in Center Field?

The Grateful Ted blog has a suggestion for the new Marlins park.

Anyway, our idea for the Marlins park is to build the world's largest pipe organ right beyond the center field fence for the stadium organist. The stadium organist is becoming a lost art these days when batters and pitchers have cued entrance music...

I doubt this is doable, put I wouldn't mind seeing the Marlins returning the days of yore.  There was something special, to me at least, when Brad Penny struck out a would be hitter and the organist played "Pennies from Heaven".  Sure it didn't rock, but it was kinda neat.

Maybe it is time to move on, but the old way of doing it still brings a smile to my face.
