First seat installed at new ballpark

It was a monumental day at the Marlins’ new ballpark.

The first of the 37,000 seats at the retractable-roof stadium was installed on Tuesday morning. Also, several players took batting practice on the grounds of the Marlins’ new home, which will open in 2012.

The ballpark will feature blue seats. But to distinguish the first seat installed, it has been painted red.

Taking part in the ceremony of the first seat being installed were Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria and team president David Samson.

So does this mean the seats will be red? I thought they were going to be blue.
