Marlins to Play in Sun Life Stadium

Until the Marlins move into their brand new ballpark in 2012, they'll be playing their home games in "Sun Life Stadium." Yes, the naming rights to the Marlins' temporary home have been sold once again.

The Marlins' home for the next two years will be known by yet another name for the 2010 season.

The football/baseball facility in South Florida, which is currently called Dolphin Stadium again, will be renamed Sun Life Stadium, after the company Sun Life Financial reached a deal with the NFL's Miami Dolphins to be the stadium's new naming-rights partner, according to SportsBusiness Daily.

An official announcement is expected Wednesday, as Sun Life's deal is for five years and averages about $7.5 million annually, unnamed sources told SportsBusiness Daily.

All right. Sun Life Stadium it is. Or, you know, we could all just keep calling it JRS.
