If you are cruising around Little Havana and notice some flag poles in a field of dirt, they are there for a reason.

The Florida Marlins today installed flag poles on the site of the new Miami ballpark depicting the exact location of home plate and the bases. The announcement was made by Marlins' Sr. Vice President of Stadium Development, Claude Delorme.

At home plate will be the flags of Miami-Dade County, City of Miami and the Florida Marlins. First base will be marked with the flag of lead-architect, Populous. At second base will be the flag of the United States of America and at third will be the flag of the project's construction manager, Hunt/ Moss, a joint venture. The flags will also be illuminated at night and home plate, the bases and base lines are painted to form a baseball diamond.

Starting to come together.
