Let’s meet the Mets as our PhD Committee celebrates the Big Apple. Baseball Bob tells us about the 2012 Mets (and other things) and our PhD Committee analyzes how Bernie Madoff has shaped the current Mets. Our podcast concludes as we say good bye to NYC and hello to Tampa!
In February 2010, Ed Kasputis flew to Kanas City to interview Gina Leo Stingley from the sports architectural firm, Populous about the opening of Target Field in April of that year. In 96 days, Populous‘ next Major League ballpark will open – Miami Marlins’ Ballpark.
On April 4, 2012 the Miami Marlins will open their new ballpark as they host the World Champion St. Louis Cardinals. Ed Kasputis interviews Greg Sherlock who was the lead designer for Major League Baseball’s newest ballpark.
Our PhD Committee is in Miami, checking out Sun Life Stadium and Miami Marlins Ballpark which is currently under construction. Ed interviews Greg Sherlock from Populous. Greg is the lead designer for the new ballpark. Ed shares his story about Little Billie and the PhD Committee talk about chivalry in baseball. Ed then interviews Steve Barr from Little League as the Little League World Series starts today. Ed also shares his experience at the SABR convention that just ended in Atlanta. Lastly, our PhD Committee gears up to move from the east coast to the west coast of Florida. Goodbye to Miami and hello to Tampa, home to those dynamic Rays.
The Florida Marlins are counting the days until they move into their beautiful new ballpark in 2012. The Marlins currently play in Sun Life Stadium which is a multi-purpose stadium located in Miami Gardens. In 2012, the Marlins will be moving to Miami and playing in a ballpark with a retractable dome. No more rain outs or rain delays!
